Holiday Haunts (1929)

As the rain falls and the nights close it seems like a good time to have something to look forward to: the first issue of the Great Western Railways’s official holiday guide was published in 1929. Sun and blue skies don’t seem so far away anymore.

The guide is part of the Library of Birmingham’s fantastic Railway Collection. Click through the photograph to find out me.
