Description Edit | History

WHSmith (normally known as W H Smith) are a huge chain of newsagents and book shops. They started in the early years of the 19th century. The son of the founder was the W H Smith that the company is named after. In 1848 he had the good idea that travellers might like a paper or book before setting off on their journey. So the company opened a shop within the railway station. This soon rapidly expanded until every major station (and quite a few smaller ones) had a W H Smith on its concourse. In the 20th century they soon spread into High Streets up and down the land.
