PPL Memorabilia

A pal who runs the bookshop in our village has just received the following as part of a house clearance. Seems a shame to bin it.

Is there any value (ebay?) or should I suggest he donates it to a local museum (Brooklands, Chertsey or Egham). Incidentally, the latter has my vote.

Stick it on eBay, I would suggest.

If the London and South East chart is available, I'd give him a tenner for it! PM me if that's a goer!
