EDITORS COMMENTS
In this print from the STEAM Museum of the GWR, we are transported back to the Victorian era, specifically to the year 1888. The image showcases a significant historical artifact - a GWR public notice issued by General Manager Henry Lambert. This notice serves as a reminder to passengers and visitors alike that it is discouraged to offer fees or gratuities to members of staff. The photograph captures not only the physical document itself but also provides us with a glimpse into an important aspect of social etiquette during that time period. It sheds light on the relationship between railway employees and those who relied on their services. In an age where tipping was customary for various services rendered, this notice indicates efforts made by GWR management to maintain professionalism and fairness within their workforce. As we examine this relic from over 130 years ago, we can't help but appreciate its preservation at STEAM Museum. Its presence allows us to reflect upon how societal norms have evolved since then while recognizing the enduring legacy of one of Britain's most iconic railway companies. Through such artifacts, history comes alive before our eyes, reminding us of both progress made and lessons learned throughout time.
