Many tickets these days seem to have adverts on the back for a variety of things from half price burgers to free cinema tickets.
Well back in the day railway tickets also had advertisements , however these were in the form of slip in adverts into pockets in the ticket.
Here are a couple of examples, I do wonder how successful they were.
Would they have encouraged you to purchase anything?
Would you buy a ticket from Nassington and be tempted to buy China tea?
