LOCAL GUIDEBOOKS, DIRECTORIES, NEWSPAPERS, MAGAZINES & TIMETABLES
I have tried to divide the archive into logical sections to make finding things easier, but this is not a comprehensive list of items in my archive, just an indication of some of the pre-2000 items I hold, so if you cannot find what you are looking for please ask.
Generally this section contains Guidebooks such as the Homeland Series, and those published by or for Woking Council (Woking Urban District Council & Woking Borough Council) or the Woking Chamber of Trade. Some of the scans are divided into two so that the files are not too large to download.
It also features Directories, such as the Kelly's & Post Office Directories and Street Directories published by the Woking News & Mail. Again some of the scans are divided into two or more sections so that the files are not too large to download.
A third section lists Newspapers & Magazines, such as the Woking News & Mail,Woking Review, Woking Opinion, Woking Herald and Woking Informer, but also some newspapers and magazines produced by or for the Council, such as the Woking Area News', the 'Woking Magazine' and the 'What's On in Woking'.
Finally there are a few local bus and train timetables.
Not everything has been scanned, but those that have are highlighted in blue on the list, so if you find something listed in white that you are interested in please let me know and I will try to get it up on this site as soon as possible.
