Holiday Fares By Instalments
Holiday Fares By Instalments.
By way of an experiment the authorities of the London, Midland, and Scottish Railway have given a certificate of authority to a member of their staff to arrange, in his spare time, holidays for the general public. The scheme involves the visiting of subscribers’ houses each week and collecting subscriptions of sixpence to one shilling. The collector, who will be furnished with holiday literature, will help to arrange the holidays by suggesting resorts to visit, and hotels and boardinghouses at which to stay. He will also have authority to reserve seats on the train for his subscribers.
