L1012. A rear three-quarter view of Hawthorn Black 0-4-0 saddletank, MAY, owned by Mackay & Davies (Contractors) of Cardiff. The locomotive is seen when working on the construction of the Great Western & Great Central Joint Railway section between High Wycombe and Princes Risborough, sometime around 1903. The picture shows MAY hauling two tipping wagons containing a gang of seven navvies. The locomotive's crew stand on their steed, the drive in the cab.
