Mr Rivitt, Sutton Coldfield's stationmaster and a porter pose with a group of policemen on the up platform. Paul Rivitt writes "I thought you would be interested in the above photograph. My great grandfather was the stationmaster there in 1912 and is seen on the left. This and a pencil written letter of the confirmation of his appointment is all that I have which was passed on to me when my father died some years ago. I am certain of the date of the picture as he was one there only for 6 months as he died suddenly from a brain tumour."
