George Stephenson - Centenary Commemoration

Scans of a booklet send by Mike Copson for inclusion on the site. I have transformed the scans in to one pdf document for ease of viewing.

The booklet was produced in 1948 and is therefore subject to copyright. Permission was granted by Chesterfield Borough Council Museum to use the booklet as below in pdf format. If you are interested in George Stephenson, you can find out more about his time in the local area by a visit to the Chesterfield Museum.

Permission to use the images within the booklet was kindly given by

Saint-Gobain PAM UK Limited

Science Museum / Science & Society Picture Library

Institution of Mechanical Engineers
