How things change. All looks very modern and almost futuristic for 1906.

@Vernon The nearest I could come to finding the 1906 farescale was this Pocket Map from 1907 from my collection.

Unfortunately, the fares also include entrance to Balkan States Exhibition

PS: Measuring Worth gives the following potential values in today's money:

£2.61 using the retail price index

£13.70 using average earnings
