Mike's Picture of the Week 2014/53

Week 53 doesn't come around very often and so I decided to indulge myself by creating this montage of scarce and/or unusual luggage labels from my extensive collection but which are not already on this web site
Most are self-explanatory but you might not be aware that the SER/SECR didn't title their labels with the exception of those to Europe as shown here plus a perforated blank label which is in my collection but there was no room for it in this montage.
The red/white/blue LBSCR label is interesting as it predates the formation of the Etat Railway in, I think, 1909. Even earlier versions of this label don't specify a channel crossing route but merely state "the shortest and cheapest sea route".
