Bradshaw's Guide The Railways of Ireland

Volume 8

Availability: In stock

Author: John Christopher

Bradshaw’s Guide of 1863 was the staple book on what’s what and where’s where for the mid-Victorians and it gives the modern reader a unique insight into the world of the nineteenth-century railway travellers. Built primarily to provide a passenger service, the railways of Ireland would go on to open up the country to tourism in new ways. They also brought communities closer together and many journeys that once took days to complete could now be undertaken in hours. This illustrated guide records the sights to be seen in the towns and cities encountered along the various routes.

John Christopher and Campbell McCutcheon take us on the railways of Ireland, using contemporary Victorian and Edwardian photographs and postcards to illustrate the scenes that the readers of Bradshaw’s Guide to the Railways would have experienced. This volume covers several of Ireland’s railways at the time, including the Great Southern Railway, the Dublin & Kingstown Railway, the Great Southern & Western Railway, the Midland Great Western Railway, and including those of Northern Ireland.

Looks like a good book Review by Railway Mad
Looks like a good book: It should be pointed out that in 1863, and in both Victorian and Edwardian Ireland, The GSR (Great Southern Railway) did not exist, nor in fact did Northern Ireland. Both are creations of the post-Edwardian era. (Posted on 21/04/2015)
