A railway timetable with some wonderful adverts from Swindon's Old Town brewery can be seen below. The brewery is long gone, but look above the entrance to Barclays Bank in Old Town High Street in Swindon and a clue to where the brewery was is still there (see below).

Looking west from behind Old Town High Street's buildings, Bowly Brewery can be seen standing tall

Looking east, Barclays Bank is marked at the top of the picture. The site of Bowly Brewery is marked centre with the M&SWJR Head Office and the site of Swindon Town station marked bottom right. Picture taken 26/11/2006.
