EDITORS COMMENTS
Step back in time with this print from 1901, showcasing the vibrant atmosphere of the Great Central Railway's excursions to Nottingham Goose Fair. A true testament to the golden age of train travel, this image captures the anticipation and excitement as passengers board trains departing from Darnall, Woodhouse, Beighton, Killamarsh, and other stations across Sheffield. In addition to providing access to one of England's most renowned fairs, these special excursions also catered to sports enthusiasts. Football fans eagerly made their way to witness thrilling English League matches between Notts County and Bradford City as well as Middlesbrough. The railway truly connected communities through shared passions for both leisurely pursuits and competitive sports. Nottingham and District Fanciers Society's poultry and pigeon show was another highlight of these memorable journeys. Enthusiasts in Sheffield had a unique opportunity to immerse themselves in the world of pigeon fancying while marveling at an array of exquisite birds on display. Preserved by Sheffield Libraries, this original print is a window into a bygone era when Dean and Dawson Ltd. , esteemed travel agents at that time, organized unforgettable adventures for eager travelers. Relive history with this remarkable piece that encapsulates not only the charm of train travel but also highlights cultural events like Nottingham Goose Fair alongside football matches and avian showcases.
