Description

Manuscript letter from W C Trevelyan of Wallington, Northumberland, outlining the origins of James Sharp and his rolling waggons, dated 18 December 1869. Wagons using wide rollers rather than wheels were proposed as a means of transporting heavy loads without damaging the road surface, particularly in wet conditions. James Sharp of Leadenhall Street London was a well-known maker of the wagons.
