L1528. Great Central Railway premises at No.25 Gallowtree Gate, Leicester, circa 1900. Dean & Dawson is one of the names that appear in the shop window. These were the agents behind many of the Great Central's cheap excursion offers, begun in an effort to attract people to the new Main Line, and take passengers away from established services like the Midland Railway.
