Title - Southern Railway – Map of System and Continental Connections.
Description - An extremely detailed system map poster of the whole pre-war Southern Railway. It shows large numbers of lines and stations which were later to be closed, and has a full station list at the bottom. It also shows other companies' lines in southern England and Wales. It is evident from this map that very few towns and villages at that time were far from a railway line. We can date it to mid 1937, as it includes the re-aligned branch from Lydd Town to New Romney & Litlestone-on-Sea, which opened with new stations on 4th July 1937, while at the same time having an official over-sticker at the bottom with the name of the new General Manager on top of Herbert Walker's name at the bottom. He retired in 1937, so the map must have been produced during that year.
