D Abraham & Sons PO wagon

Postby wokmad » Tue Apr 09, 2019 11:37 am

I recently acquired the attached view dated ca. 1910 of a PO wagon No. 154 lettered for D Abraham & Sons, Briton Ferry. A high resolution scan of the original reveals nothing more, but I would like to know what the centre line of writing says.
According to the 1911 census a D Abraham and family lived at Baglan and that father and his three sons were listed as coal and land merchants. Tony Cooke’s Gazetteer of South Wales Coal Mines records that in 1928 D Abraham & Sons, not necessarily the same family, were the owners of Caerau House Coal Colliery.
Any further information on this wagon would be most welcome.
