George Eyre – Todd, 1862 – 1937, was a prolific Scots author with over 20 books to his credit. These were mainly about Scottish poetry, biography and topography but he could turn his pen to odd subjects outside his usual repertoire. For example he was commissioned by the Caledonian Railway to write their guide book in 1907
These “Peeps” books were mainly aimed at younger readers. This type of book, with colourful covers, was popular as school prizes.
The early part of this work is taken up with early railway history. The remainder consists of description of the tourist attractions of the towns and cities served by the LNWR.
