Weighbridge proposed at Thirsk 1884


This printed flyer advertising a public meeting exists in isolation apart from a brochure from Saml. Dennison and Son of North Street, Leeds. I do not know whether the weighbridge was ever constructed - but doubt it.

The back of the flyer includes a note in the hand of Henry Smith, solicitor of Thirsk, that Mr Stott proposed a resolution creating a committee of six persons. The note goes on to include seven people.
