Bradshaw’s Handbook

Bradshaw’s Handbook



George Bradshaw became famous for producing the world’s most successful and longest running combined railway timetable – a publication to be found in the library of every Victorian traveller. But in the middle of the nineteenth century, with the railway network reaching its peak, and tourism by rail becoming a popular pursuit for the better off, his company shifted focus to tourist guides designed for the rail traveller. Bradshaw’s Descriptive railway Hand-Book of Great Britain and Ireland was published in four parts, describing the sights to be seen in towns and cities encountered along selected railway journeys in each region. Gathered together into a single book it bore the short title Bradshaw’s Handbook and after a few years passed into obscurity, remaining extremely rare to this day.
