These tickets were for the journey from Liverpool to Warrington on the Liverpool & Manchester and Grand Junction Railways. These tickets were cut from an order book by a clerk, who, on their purchase, filled in the details of the train time and the price paid. One side was isued to the pasenger, the other retained as the railway company's receipt. This is the reverse side, warning pasengers not to tip railway employees and that smoking was prohibited in First Clas carriages. These particular tickets were never isued.
