Pulmans Christmas List

5th December 2017

Well, like it or not, Christmas is just around the corner, and it’s time to get the decorations up again! Whether they’re up in the attic, down in the cellar, under the stairs or out in the shed, digging out your Christmas decorations always proves to be a memorable part of the holiday season, and for us, this year has been especially memorable!

We were rummaging around in the attic last week, dragging our trees, tinsel and mistletoe out of hibernation when we came across something very interesting! In a forgotten corner, buried under a pile of Christmas delights, we found some old Pulmans logbooks dating back over 100 years!

Flipping through the pages of these logbooks, we found a number of lists for Christmas gifts from Pulmans dating back to around the year 1900!

We have scanned a few of these pages in order for you to see the handwritten lists of our customers and the gifts they were to set receive for Christmas over a hundred years ago. It’s a nice little glimpse into life more than a century ago, and if you’re familiar with the Halifax area, you might even recognise some names of our customers!
