My luggage has a ticket to ride

Ephemera 1 4 Ephemera 1 3

The London and South Western Railway ran from 1838 and 1922 but I imagine these luggage labels are from its last years.

Frimley station opened in 1878 and, fortunately, is still open and operating although the building is now used by a private company.

Freshwater station was open from 1889 to 1953 but is now the site of a supermarket.

I have to admit that there is no direct link between the two labels but I wanted to show both as a reminder of the railway lines that have now closed and an era when you could label up your holiday luggage and confidently send it on ahead…….
