Female passengers in a LNWR dining carriage, c 1905.

Two female passengers publicising London and North Western Railway's dining carriages. An official photograph showing two female passengers eating a meal. Photographs of carriages from this period rarely included the passengers. Using the cameras and plates of the day, images such as this would have been virtually impossible to take on a moving train, because of the long exposure required in a dimly- lit carriage.
