CommentsI'm not sure if this is an MDFCTA trough. Does anyone know the history and provenance of this trough? Mr Henry Richardson was proprietor of a tannery on Cherry Hill in the latter half of the 19th Century and a co-founder of York branch of the RSPCA in 1864. It is tempting to assign this trough to MDFCTA number [1674] which was type 1c trough originally on the corner of Walton Road, erected by the York Branch of RSPCA.
