Document of the Day - Communications Receipt
While a little dull as documents go, this communications receipt is of interest in some respects as it shows that by the 1900s railway companies had long-established formal methods of communications with their customers. As shown the receipt above was pre-printed, however there were spaces were the required information could be written. Thus, this sped up the time it took for officials to actually reply to an individual in an era when everything was hand-written and quite slow.
