Merseytravel pass



ID: A white and orange train pass that reads 'All Zones' and 'issued 26 April 91'. There is a small ID photograph of Caroline in the top left. She is wearing black sunglasses and a black hat. Caroline's address is handwritten at the bottom. These ‘All Day’ Merseytravel Zone Ticket passes were issued to disabled people in Merseyside by Merseytravel from 1988 until 1999. They could be used on buses, trains, and Mersey Ferries. Caroline travelled often, especially to visit her many friends, go to church, and to spend time with her family. Outside of Liverpool, she particularly enjoyed outings with her niece Heather, who she visited in Shropshire. Heather remembers her days out with Caroline: “Aunty Carol brought another dimension into my life, an insight into blindness. She always wanted to know about the world around her and on our many trips to Shrewsbury town centre, I would describe the shops and she would make some quip or remark.”
