Lovely old pictures of Stroud from Howard Beard

HOWARD Beard looks at horse-drawn delivery vehicles around the Stroud area.

Pictured are:

  • Joseph Baughan’s grocery store was at the bottom of Coppice Hill in Chalford. This postcard view shows Mr Baughan on the right, with his son-in-law, Ashley Young, holding the horse’s reins.
  • R T Smith and Co were carriers linked to the Great Western Railway. Their Stroud office was at 15 Kendrick Street.
  • Commercial vehicles often served as carnival floats. Here a two-horse wagon carries the winning entry in Nailsworth’s Peace Carnival which took place in the summer of 1919 and celebrated the return to happier times following World War One.
