1902 - A letter from Samuel Thomas to T. A. Walker Esq. (contractor) regarding Simons tender. and the Dredger "Robert Wassall". The letter is signed by Samuel Thomas and the header confirms his telegraphic address is "Dockmaster, Penarth" and that he has two telephone lines to the office Nos 9 and 449. His position as 'Superintendent and Collector of Dues - Saml. Thomas' is also noted. The address is the Taff Vale Railway, Dock Superintendent's Office, Penarth and the letter is dated 11th October 1902.

I assume that the Dock Superintendent's Office was situated within the Customs House building of 1865. The letter confirms Samuel Thomas's standing and position at the Penarth Dock.

The original letter is held within the archives of the National Museum of Wales. [629] [Museum item number : 88.20I/222} {20180526]
