Mr. Carlos Vieira has forwarded us an interesting document...

"Greetings! 

Please find attached an agreement dated 3rd January 1893 between SA Public Works Corporation Limited and Gloucester Railway Carriage & Wagon.

The agreement is of interest as it originates from one that has survived 114 years. That's a record! 

I also enclose a photocopy of the original Princess Christian Hospital Train - the first hospital train in the world. 

Yours sincerely, 
Carlos Vieira
"
