Post's Folly

Last evening, at Doncaster, a coroner's jury returned a verdict of manslaughter against Edward Post, a foreman platelayer, of Sheffield, for causing the death of a plate layer named Walter Atkin by throwing a brick out of a train which was proceeding to Doncaster.  (Yorkshire Evening Post, October 20th, 1897)
