As this week's Sepia Saturday showed a picture of a train, this seemed like the ideal opportunity to share a few vintage railway advertisements. These all come from Hampshire and Dorset guide books of the 1920's, but the locations they are advertising are much further afield, and cover the Great Western Railway, Scotland, Holidays on the Continent, and The Far East, South Africa and Australia ... although please note that the Blue Funnel Line is For First-Class Passengers Only ... but presumably means that one would need a first class ticket rather than needing to be a first class person.
