Memorabilia - Mug and Bookmark

Lets take a look at some of the items that were available from the gift shop. The mug was purchased in the early 1990's, though judging from the logo and vintage car (from Bicton Hall of Transport) that can be seen, it is likely that it was old stock and actually originates from the late 70's or early 80's. The bookmark is from the late 70's and features scenes from the woodland railway - kept in such neat condition throughout my childhood. Maybe a sign that I didn't read all that much back then.

1960's Leaflet

This beautiful little leaflet must be one of the first that Bicton produced after opening to the public in the 1960's. I love the simplicity of this one and the fact that it mentions the 'Whitsun holidays'.

Please click on the images to make them larger so that they can be read.

I will be adding more from my collection of leaflets and booklets. Please get in touch if you have any Bicton Promotional material or merchandise that I could add to this growing collection.
