Walter Southworth of Rufford haulage

Walter Southworth also had a haulage business in the village, and this remarkable photograph of the 1920s shows one of his wagons complete with trailor. The solid tyres are clearly in evidence, as is the load of barley gathered in 2 cwt sacks. This would probably have been brought from Liverpool Docks and be taken to Brock, North of Preston.
