Wagon Label

Circa 1945

Before 1920, Grain made up around 80% of rail traffic. After this date, the production of wheat declined but barley still remained popular use in brewing and as animal feed.

The barley was transported commonly on trains, in sack, which could be hired for a penny a week from the train operator.

Wagon Labels were attached to the Sacks of Malt when transported to their next destination, to indicate what was inside and where it had come from.
