Talk in YorkSusan Major will be at Clements Hall, York to talk about her new book 'Early Victorian Railway Excursions: the Million Go Forth'.
Susan said: ”I’m particularly interested in the way that working class travel in the mid 19th century has been ignored, for lack of evidence about the use of carts for example. Very little has been discovered about how ordinary people used the newly developing railways in Britain at that time, and how these affected their leisure mobility.”
