Snowdon Mountain Tramroad Guide 1911 [ebook]


Booklet, 7.25”x 4.75”. 26pp inc. covers, black and white, spot colour on coloured covers. 4 black and white photos. (note these were originally printed using a very coarse screen. Because of the effects of digital scanning, they are best viewed “1to1”).


Actually a rack-railway of a type common on the continent, the Snowdon seems to have called itself a tramroad because the British were familiar with trams, but would not know what a rack-railway was. A hotel at the summit tempted visitors to stay the night and see the sunrise, fortified by Haig Whisky, Allsopp ales and Peak Frean biscuits, according to the adverts.
