Sylvan 1934
FA2002.509:- 

Road book, with itineraries and maps, scale about 6 miles to 1 inch, Roadhouses and Clubs of the Home Counties, published by Sylvan Publications, 5 Gower Street, London, 1934.
The introduction is addressed to a future horn-rimmed historian (that's us!) and desribes the phenomenom of th road house; there are two pages of vouchers for reductions to charges - one used, which spoils the introductory text; itineraries of suggested routes into London; a key map and six maps covering SE England, a table of distances of road houses from towns; and a series of descriptions illustrated with photographs, advertising the charms of the road houses.
The only road house in Hampshire is The Venture, Basingstoke, which does not have a descriptive advert.
