Bradshaw's Date Of Birth[edit]

Bradshaw's date of birth appears to be misquoted in many books and on many websites, he was born 29th July 1800 (not 1801). His gravestone states that he was 53 when he died in September 1853, this concurs with the baptism entry in the Windsor New Chapel registry, where he was Christened in 1802, which clearly states "born 29th July 1800".

Untitled[edit]

I have to admit to finding Wiki's rating system way over my head. However I will say an article about Bradshaw is totally justified. I have edited one word (so far) and that is important. The first Bradshaw was the first compilation of railway timetables. There had been railway timetables before. It's obvious there were and various books show these like Train & Transport showing an 1835 Stockton & Darlington one. I have an 1838 Grand Junction one headed Time Table in Cornish's guide. Should anyone be able to input a more exact last date (exact day) for the last 1961 Bradshaw that would be helpful.

1841 Bradshaw - was it really only 8 pages?[edit]

A message on the uk.railway Usenet newsgroup today (thread title: "Bradshaws Railway Guide") suggests otherwise. A quote: "The John Rylands Library copies of the 1841 edition have 49 un-numbered pages; the Goldsmiths Library copy scanned for the MOME on-line edition seems to have "[38] leaves (some folded)" but there's definitely more than eight." So where did the "eight pages" comment on our article come from? 86.136.253.102 (talk) 22:25, 10 July 2008 (UTC)

Currency references?[edit]

What does this mean: "...had risen in price to two shillings (2s/10p)" Since when is 2 shillings equivalent to 2 shillings and ten pence??? Br77rino (talk) 00:09, 6 February 2012 (UTC)
