Great Central Railway hand bill from 1899

Great Central Railway hand bill from 1899

Back to the story
L2685. Great Central Railway hand bill advertising 'Day Trips to Shakespeare's Country'. Organised by Dean & Dawson, the Great Central travel agents, these cheap fast excursions ran from Nottingham to Stratford-on-Avon every Sunday during July and August in 1899. Interestingly, the discounted tickets could not only be obtained at the agents and railway stations themselves, but at various independent businesses, including a china store, tobacconist, ironmonger and draper.
