This row of vehicles look like "Toad" brake vans, but the cabin sides and ends are only half-height. They may be tunnel inspection vehicles, or perhaps a passenger "rescue" train for the Severn Tunnel.

Likely bomb damage from same 1942 raid as on Beatrice St. Site later used as builder's yard & known as "Bradley's Corner"

Looks like 1942 bomb damage here - end terraces don't have upward slanting back bedroom roofs. End terrace at junction of Ferndale & Whitehouse Rd (where bomb also hit) hit has same missing end terrace (aka "Bradley's Corner").

Looks like one of the single ended ones, built to run with another unit and a coach between them to make a three coach set.

There are so many wonderful photos in this magnificent collection, words fail me. This photo is so useful as a resource for railway modellers.
