Description

The passengers are probably on their way to the South Coast. Waterloo is London's busiest and largest station. The photograph was taken to show that passenger numbers had resumed after a lull during the Second World War. During the war it was difficult for people to travel as the number of passenger trains was limited. The railways were used for more important purposes, such as delivering essential supplies.
