J. C. Wall ( -1897)
The death occurred on Sunday of Mr. J. C. Wall, a well-known West of England railway veteran. Mr. Wall was at one time secretary and manager of the Bristol and Exeter Railway, which was absorbed by the Great Western Company in 1875.
Mr. Wall did not give up railway work when the Bristol and Exeter passed out of his hands, but he became cartage agent to the Great Western.
Up to last year, when his health began to decline, Mr. Wall was an aldermanic member of the Bristol Town Council."
