Photograph taken with a Pocket Kodak camera of a wayward railway locomotive which has smashed through a station wall. The Pocket Camera was the first Kodak camera to use rollfilm backed with a light- tight paper strip. Though the camera would not be described as pocket-sized by today's standards, it was a good deal more portable than its predecesors, as photographers were quick to realise.
