Does anyone have any photo,s of horse drawn vehicles.
I remember seeing the John Mason,s pantechnicon removals van and a 2 wheeled single horse bakers van on display in the basement of the museum.
Any pics would be grateful.

I know the John Mason wagon you are on about though in the old Museum basement, have JM got a website with any of their yesteryear vehicles on?

They dont seem to have anything but a business site.
I suppose this fantastic article must be held in storage or loaned out to another museum.
Its a shame we have so much riches in this department that we see very little of them.

There's links to 20 different sites of Liverpool photos here:

Hopefully there's something.

Hi Norm
Thanks for model pics, I have collected those in the past and made some 4mm OO gauge models also.
In the throws of building O gauge horse drawn models with a view to building a diorama of 1890s Liverpool.
Hence the need for pics, some of which I have aquired but would still like more.

Thats just the ticket mate, I have not got these ones.
Have you come across any with 2 or 4 wheeled delivery vans, local (Liverpool)companies would be great.
Many thanks for your help.

Hi xkopite! See Kev's come up trumps with the pics! Good luck with your diorama. If you need any pics of the 'models of yesterday' vehicles (Not horsedrawn) let me know, I can add as attachments. Cheers:PDT_Aliboronz_24:
