By 1863, when Bradshaw published his guide to the West Coast Main Line, it was one of the most important routes in the country. This book covers its final section, giving an insight into Victorian railways and recording the attractions of the towns and cities along the way. The original text is accompanied by contemporary images including photos, postcards and promotional paintings, bringing the journey to life.
1918: End Game
The First World War in Photographs
Month by month, the authors use a collection of around 250 photographs and reproductions to follow events during the final year of war, from the arrival of American troops and guns in January to the German surrender in November. The final chapters examine many aspects of the immediate aftermath, including the battlefields where 'peace visitors' toured the devastation, the ongoing treatment of wounded men, and the funeral of the Unknown Soldier in London.
Part 2: East Coast
Published in 1863, Bradshaw's guide pre-dated the amalgamation of railways in Scotland, and the journey from Berwick to Aberdeen and beyond visits towns along the East Coast Main Line, the Waverley Route and the Great North of Scotland Railway, with trips along important branch routes to places such as Abbotsford, St Andrews and Montrose. Illustrated with archive photographs from the age of steam.
