Three sacks of seconds and some English wheat

HERE we have another of those old shop receipts that often prove to be the only surviving, tangible link with a long-gone local company.

It comes once again from the collection of Wednesbury historian Ian Bott, and was issued just over a hundred years ago in 1912, by the West Bromwich company of Thomas Wheatley & Son.

Wheatley's were based at the Lodge Flour Mills on Oak Road, and on this occasion had sold Mr A.C. Wright over eight pounds' worth of goods including '3 sacks of seconds', 1 sack of 'superfine', some bran and English wheat.

Do let us know if you have any mementoes of bygone Black Country firms.
