Railway Ribaldry Reviews

"If you have an older relative who loves either trains or old-fashioned cartoon art, then I have the perfect gift for you to give them... The drawings are lovely, with plenty of detail to pore over. They're full of people, as manual labor was much more common then. And, of course, human nature hasn't changed, with people picking complicated ways to do things, and them liking to dress up and commemorate first trains." --Comics Worth Reading
