Rewley Road Coal Depot

This shot of Rewley Road was apparently taken on 14th March 1952, when it was being used as a coal depot. It clearly shows how faithfully the main building was reconstructed at Quainton, but I wonder what happened to the sloping roof single storey part of the building in the left of the picture? Maybe it was not a part of listed structure and so was not covered by the preservation order? [Note 1]

The negative was donated by QRS member Neville Bridger and is now in our Collection. There is camera shake on it that cannot be further corrected, but you can still make out the Co-op Coals sign above the office window on the right of the picture.
