L.N.E.R hand bill advertising bank holiday excursions

L2708. This hand bill was produced by the London & North Eastern Railway in 1926 to advertise its cheap excursions which were available for the August bank holiday. In common with similar excursions that had been running since the Great Central Railway began (the G.C.R. had been absorbed into the L.N.E.R. in 1923), passengers had to travel third class; they could not bring luggage onto the train, and had to make the return journey on the same day.
