Poster advertising a 'Wakes Week' ticket which was valid for a week and meant that you could take several day trips or stay somewhere overnight. Wakes Week was the week in the year when everyone in the same town got the week off. As a result public transport was very crowded as people took to the coast or to the countryside to make the most of their holiday.
