This fourth volume of illustrated Bradshaw's Guides takes the traveller from the London Bridge and Victoria stations via the former South Eastern Railway to the 'watering places' of the coast of Kent.
What's inside this Bradshaw Guide 'South Eastern Railway'
Along the way the train calls in at a number of locations including Greenwich, Woolwich, Gravesend, Rochester, Chatham, Margate, Broadstairs, Ramsgate, Deal, Dover and Folkestone. The various branch lines also take in Tunbridge Wells, Battle and Hastings as well as the cathedral city of Canterbury.
Bradshaw’s guide was published in 1863, not that long after most of the railway network had been completed. It gives the reader a unique insight into the world of the Victorian railways and goes beyond the engineering aspects to record the sights to be seen in the towns and cities encountered along the way.
Bradshaw's original text is accompanied by contemporary images and many new photographs of the same journey today
