Railway rugs were worn by train travellers, usually on their legs or shoulders, to protect them from draughts in the carriages. While first class passengers rode in enclosed carriages, second and third class passengers could have no such assurance. Indeed, most third class carriages were completely open to the elements, save for the carriage roof. The rugs advertised here have been salvaged from a warehouse fire in Manchester, hence their relative cheapness.
