Some of the following pictures come from the original prospectus and its quite possible they were also some of the original suppliers of materials used during its construction.

Harborne village would have been the main source of supply for many things being very close to the Estate via the bridge over the railway line at Harborne Station. Coal merchants were located close to the railway which brought much of the coal in.
