Kay, 17 Restalrig Crescent,
Edinburgh, was a trawler owner around 1900.
He owned the steam trawler,
SEA KING, built 1893 by Cumming & Ellis,
Inverkeithing, and registered in Leith.
He also operated his own coal wagons.
Do you know anything
about A Kay or dates that he operated?"
"I have been asked this question by a
friend who is researching the usage of personal liveried railway coal wagons in
C19 and C20 Scotland."
