Invoice from Ridger's cart, van and waggon builders, St Michael's Road, Aldershot, 1898. Just as today's car repairs form a regular part of maintaining a motor vehicle, coach builders and wheelwrights were kept busy repairing wagons and their wheels, which at this time would have been subject to considerable damage from Aldershot's largely unmade roads. As waggon building declined in the early years of the twentieth century, Ridgers undertook more business as a timber merchant.
