James Longworth says
I would like to submit an article on NSW railway tickets as ephemera for consideration. Are there any contributor guidelines? Could i see a sample issue of the journal to see the type of articles that are considered suitable for publication?
Thanks for the offer James much appreciated; I will direct email you and get your address so you can see the journal’s approach
