L2725. A Great Central Railway hand bill produced by Dean & Dawson - the company's official travel agent - to promote its half-day excursion tickets to Chesterfield, whose team Leicester Fosse were playing in a 'Grand Football Match' on Saturday February 15th 1902. For two shillings and nine pence, fans wishing to go and see the game could catch one of two special services that left Leicester Central that afternoon.
