A fun day out at the seaside

For her historical feature this week, Margaret Mills took us back to a summer day in 1906 when an Ilford based company had arranged their annual outing to take their staff to the seaside – Margate. Staff duly gathered on the platform at 6am at Ilford station to enjoy their day.

But things started to go wrong from the start with the train arriving late and this only got worse with further late running connections, and by the time they eventually got back to London, train services had closed for the day resulting in them having to walk back to Ilford!

 

Listen to the sorry tale here in full: –

See you again next week,
