I may have mentioned earlier in this thread, the horse drawn coal delivery cart that used to trundle around locally from the coal depot sited at the freight yard on the North London Railway Line pretty much at the end of my street. The picture below is just how I remember the coal being carried from the cart to the houses. Dustbins had to be metal, as they were for the coal dust and (sometimes still hot) ashes. And the boy is dressed just how I used to be dressed at that age.
