Cabinet 11: Rail Ephemera
Fred A. Winkler, Railroad Conductor. Spokane, Washington: Pacific Book Company, 1948.
Held in awe or occasionally derided, the conductor walks from car to car, and on entering the carriage he (not too many conductors are female) utters that well-known phrase: Tickets Please! The role remains essential to railroad operations. Indeed, as evidenced here, there are books about conductors, their relationship with the railroads, the general public, and fellow workers. Winklers book cost Webber US$2.75. Webber also collected tickets, and no doubt these New Delhi tram tickets were dispensed or clicked by a conductor.
