Accident on Aerial Railway

On Tuesday afternoon Harry Cartwright, son of Mr. Fred Cartwright, of the Pleasure Gardens, met with an accident.

While engaged on the aerial railway on the sands one of the iron carriages slipped from the iron rope and fell on the side of his head cutting it rather severely.

The wound was at once dressed by Dr. Bernard, and the unfortunate lad is progressing as well as can be expected.
