Some while ago a brother who had visited the website and seen my interest in Victorian gospel work, got in contact about a collection he has built up of several thousand photographs, postcards etc of 'Gospel Vehicles', from the Victorian era to the present day. Many books I have retell stories of this type of evangelism in days gone by, people whose whole life sometimes was just to travel around in one of these carts, maybe selling Bibles to pay expenses but with the sole intention of spreading the Word. Anyway the brother kindly shared with me a few scans I could use for the website. Would love to get more of these type of pictures!
