Broad Theme: Topographical

Few sections of the John Johnson Collection are devoted to a geographical area or city, but several are sub-sorted by place, for example:

  • Booktrade
  • Educational
  • Noteheadings
  • Seaside, Lakes and Spas
  • Theatre, Provincial

The Collection is rich in provincial as well as London ephemera and is a good resource for local history. Places are indexed both by venue (where applicable) and town (e.g. Theatre Royal, Newcastle upon Tyne and Newcastle upon Tyne, Theatre Royal).   Please note that work remains to be done on standardising the names of towns in the place index.
