Georgina Bradshaw is, first. a graduate of the Quirm College for Young Ladies, with all that that entails. When encountered in Raising Steam she is not as influential as Sybil Ramkin or as notable in recent history as Susan Sto Helit, but Moist von Lipwig recognises the training and the capability immediately when he meets her on a train. She is interested in the faraway places that may be accessible by the new railway and Moist is interested in her ability to describe and promote these in travel guides that may encourage ridership.

She manages to make places like High Mouldering sound enticing and promises to generate wealth for herself, Thomas Goatberger and the Ankh-Morpork and Sto Plains Hygienic Railway.


George Bradshaw was an English cartographer, printer and publisher who developed Bradshaw's Guide, a widely sold series of railway timetables and travel guide books.
