Details

7 Plank Wagon in the livery of W.R. Davies & Co Wagon Contractors, Liverpool, No. 701. W.R. Davies & Co of Liverpool were formed in 1901, specialising in wagon hire, repair and maintenance with their head offices located in the Liver Building, Liverpool. They established a repair facility at Springs Branch in Wigan, which was ideally situated as a large number of their hire customers operated in the local coalfields. Several other repair facilities were subsequently established, however by 1919 Mr. Davies had become a major shareholder in the Ince Wagon and Ironworks Co, becoming a Director of the company that manufactured many of Davies' hire wagons. The wagon repair business continued to operate until 1930 before being acquired by Wagon Repairs Ltd, who closed the Wigan repair facility in 1931, whilst W.R Davies continued their hire business until 1932 when the company went into receivership.
