Composer: Albert, Fred

George Bradshaw claimed to have produced the first train timetable, and whether o not he was the first they soon became invaluable handbooks for Victorian travellers. His 'Guides' (Time tables was too narrow a term and Companion was unprofessional!) included maps of cites like Manchester, Leeds and Liverpool.
