GPO Mail Bus Ruan Minor Cross Roads, Cornwall. 1903

The Great Western Railway Daimler General Post Office mail bus, AF 84, meeting the donkey shay carrying the Ruan Minor mail at Ruan Minor Cross Roads. The photograph is titled " Extremes Meet". Three men, including the driver, sit in the front. A man and young woman stand posing for the camera. They could be bus passengers as the young woman is carrying valise. However, the man could be a postal worker or Great Western Railway employee, as his coat has brass buttons as would be found on a uniform. Mr Tommy Dawe is holding the postal bag and the donkey reins. He has a badge with letters and number 4 on both sides of his jacket collar. It is not certain, but this could be GPO 4 which might be the local postmans uniform. The notice on the right reads: GREAT WESTERN RAILWAY COMPANYs ROAD MOTOR CARS WILL LEAVE THIS HALTE. (RUAN MINOR CROSS ROADS) The two columns below this read. Left side: FOR HOUSEL ROAD AND THE LIZARD. The right side is illegible, apart from the last entry of HELSTON STATION. The young womans clothing is an a good indication of ordinary female fashion at this time. Photographer: Arthur Philp
