Leafing through my copy of Narrow Boats at Work, this strip of tickets which had been used as a bookmark fell out. They are issued by the North Sunderland Harbour Commissioners and for the cost of 17p entitle a passenger to travel on... what? A ferry, maybe? And how long ago was 17p a substantial enough sum to buy you a ticket on anything? Most intriguing. I love finding things like this in old books. Can anyone shed any light on it?
