I was at an auction house earlier today inspecting a lot which is going up for sale tomorrow.

The lot is one of the unused share certificates for the Waterloo & Whitehall railway. Not possible to see if it was printed for the first share issue, or the second one which occured after the banking crisis – but it will be a nice little thing to add to my growing collection about this rather interesting railway.

I also managed to recently purchase a copy of the Illustrated London Times dated June 22nd, 1867 – which has a plate drawing which I have already seen – but might also have some accompanying text.
