Rural pamphlet library

We have digitised 21 surviving rural pamphlets (1940s-1960s) and are delighted to launch our online library – click here to view all pamphlets.

Our featured pamphlet was published by the Rural Electrification Office (REO) in the late 1940s. It gives an excellent overview of the scheme, clearly explaining to rural customers how they could get electricity in their home, what they could use it for, and how much it would cost. The REO mascot, Johnny Hotfoot, features throughout.
