GB 1899 Railway - Barry Railway
Stock Code: P201006252
C.1889 Barry Dock and Railways Company Newspaper label. Very fine unused imperforate example, printed in black on white paper endorsed "for ONE Newspaper" with control number "417" at top. The company had been incorporated under the name of Barry Dock and Railway Company. It transpired that the precedence of the word "dock" placed the shares in a different category that was disadvantageous, and it was decided to change the company name to The Barry Railway Company in 1891 resulting in these labels only being in use for a maximum of two years before they were replaced. Small central thin nevertheless a presentable example of this scarce label, unrecorded by Ewen.
