Photograph of Modane railway station in the French Alps, taken by Joguet et Fils. In 1917 Modane was the site of the worst disaster in French railway history. A troop train ran out of control on a steep incline and over 800 soldiers were killed. Muzet Joguet ran a studio based in Lyon, France, during the 1860s. The studio specialised in topographic photographs and documentary studies of civil engineering works.
