1832 Excursion to Scotland - handwritten journal

This is a nice release on the Internet Archive at www.archive.org/details/excursiontoscotl00anonuoft. It's an anonymous hand-written journal of an excusion to Scotland and back (from London) in summer of 1832. It includes a voyage from London to Stockton, then by land from Stockton to various points north to Edinburgh and Glasgow, then back to London via Carlisle and York. As a handwritten copy, the chances of tracking down another copy are practically nil! The book has several scenic postcards glued into it, and can be downloaded in PDF format.

A nice online release.
