Most railway companies had some kind of “in house” printing facility even if only a duplicating section for daily and weekly traffic notices. The Great Eastern was unusual, in that it had its own well-equipped printing works adjacent to Stratford Market station. Apart from the daily bread and butter output this was capable of producing high quality work like this booklet and the guide to Stratford Locomotive Works linked below.
It would be fascinating to try one or two of these walks today, and see just how much, or in remoter parts, how little has changed. A most unusual and attractive little booklet.
