Over the last academic year we’ve been working on a project to digitise our collection of railway pictures and posters. One of our student volunteers created metadata for the collection and took images. These were then entered into our catalogue where they can all be discovered and accessed.
This means that, for the first time, this collection is easily accessible. The collection is rather diverse, including images of railway advertising, both relatively recent and much earlier:
records of achievements in the lives of railway staff, such as this first aid certificate awarded to Frederick Payne:
and the Travellers’ Aid Society poster warning to women travelling alone which has featured on this blog before.
