An 1869 poster announcing a fares reduction between Glasgow (Bridge Street) and Ibrox/Govan. The station at Govan stood at the terminus of a branch of the Glasgow and Paisley Joint line and there was never any such company as the Glasgow & Govan Railway. Perhaps someone in marketing department thought, for the purposes of the poster, it sounded more user-friendly! The G&P station at Govan finally closed to passengers in May 1921.
