Boats and Trains (No planes)

The John Price postcard collection held at the Museum is not purely trams.

A pre-1923 image of the London and North-Western Railway's early-morning business men's express from Birmingham New Street to London's Broad Street station (for the City). The caption on the reverse notes: 'A special feature of this train is the provision of a typewriting compartment, enabling business men to deal with their correspondence en route.'

A topical image, with the Cadbury's takeover bid in the news. Narrow boats carrying fresh milk for Cadbury's milk chocolate.
