Central London Railway Company ticket free pass. This first-class free pass to the White City Exhibition was issued by the Metropolitan Railway Company to Albert Kiralfy. Albert and his brother Imre were the organisers of the Franco-British Exhibition staged at the White City, Shepherd's Bush, west London. The White City was constructed on 140 acres of land previously used for agriculture. In preparation for the great number of visitors to the site, the Underground network was extended to include Wood Lane station, which was connected to the exhibition by a covered walkway. In 1947 the station was replaced by White City station, just north of the original exhibition site.
