Bradshaw's Railway Companion, timetable book published by J. W. Adams, London, 1843.

George Bradshaw (1801-1853) was a cartographer, printer and publisher and the originator of the railway timetable. Bradshaw’s first timetables were published in October 1839 and produced in two separate issues, for northern and southern railway companies, but they were combined into the Bradshaw’s Railway Companion.

As the railway network spread with hundreds of new railway lines operated by different companies, “Bradshaw’s” quickly became a household name and an essential item for any regular long-distance traveller.
