This is a postcard we bought while on a recent visit to England. It is published by the British Library, and copyrighted by the board of the library.

The engine shown is from an illustration in the 1897 catalogue of road locomotives manufactured by Charles Burrell and Sons, famous firm of Thetford, Norfolk.

The catalogue is in the trade literature collection of the Science reference Library, which undoubtedly would be a mine of all kinds of steam data for those who wish to do research.

Some libraries in the U. S. and Canada include trade catalogues in their collections. If you know of any which have especially interesting books, booklets, catalogs, manuals, advertisements, or other steam publications, why not inform your fellow IMA readers?
