Commemorative Jug, Liverpool & Manchester Railway
- c. 1830 in United Kingdom
Liverpool and Manchester Railway commemorative jug, c. 1830, featuring the Moorish Arch in Liverpool and the locomotive 'Novelty'.
This jug was made to celebrate the opening of the Liverpool and Manchester Railway. It was an exciting occasion because most people had never travelled by train or even seen one before.
Manufacturers cashed in on the excitement by creating objects to help people remember the event.
