St Albans Ephemera -

Coal for the Midland Railway station - 1900


Genealogy in


St Albans



Sometimes you can be lucky and some piece of ephemera has survived which can suggest what your ancestors might have been doing on a particular day in the past. In this case we have a couple to tickets recording the dispatch of coal to the Midland Railway Station - almost certainly for the engines - but possibly also for the fires in the waiting rooms and the station master's office!
