This category covers British travel tickets from the 20th century. I’ve deliberately restricted this selection to older Edmonson-style tickets rather than including modern computerised examples. However there are many examples of a type called NCR21 which was an intermediate form used in southern England from the 1970s to the 1990s. If a ticket is pre-printed it meets the criteria to be included.

My aim is to showcase this type of ephemera, but also to stimulate your own memory and travel stories. Please note I don’t sell any tickets, although I’ve bought many over the years.
