Greetwell Ironstone Mines: some illustrations dated July & August, 1923 (and three more undated from the 1920s)

Greetwell Ironstone Mines: A Map of the system : Current Ordnance Survey 1:50,000 map : Some more illustrations.

Horse bringing up a main-line truck under shute down which the ore comes from the tram. Of interest is the ‘MLIC‘ branding, and the wagon number ‘86‘. Image dated 30th July, 1923
Similar to the above, and obviously taken at the same time; 30th July, 1923
Described as ‘Mouth of tunnel under the Greetwell Road near Monk’s Tower’ (sic). : 4th August, 1923
Described as ‘Passing loop near mouth of tunnel’, 4th August, 1923
An undated photograph taken at the tipping dock by the old MSLR. The wagon is of interest: painted up with MLIC markings, and with dumb buffers. The photograph is thought to have been taken in the mid-1920s but I understand that the manufacture of dumb buffered wagons ceased in 1889 and that they were banned from the main line after 31st December 1913. Is the wagon an ‘internal user’?

An undated photograph: somewhere in Greetwell Hollow near ‘Outer Circle Road’. The building in the left background is thought to be the ‘Bowling Green’ Public House which was built before 1932. Tonks’ map indicates that this area ceased to be worked by c1926. (According to a plaque over the door the ‘Bowlo’ was built in 1926. [After a number of years of mis-use the ‘Bowling Green’ was demolished in late Summer 2014])

Another undated photograph for ‘The Family Album’. Possibly the stables in the background, with the offices to the rear.
