Bradshaw's Guides have been popularised as never before through over-exposure on Michael Portillo's railway journeys on the TV. However they rightly remain a major source of historical information on railways & social history. This copy of 1921 was still celebrating the zenith of railways in Great Britain and incorporates a wealth of detail on all operational lines from the smallest branch lines to the main line companies. The adverts are fascinating in themselves and provide insight to the supply & operation of the railways in that year.
