Description

Painted photograph by F Moore showing a steam locomotive of the London, Tilbury & Southend Railway (LTSR) pulling a pasenger train, leaving the station at Southend-on-Sea for Fenchurch Street Station, London. The LTSR was the first line from London to reach Southend. The line opened on 13 April 1854 to Tilbury and on 1 March 1856 to Southend, and there were four daily trains each way to Fenchurch Street station. The rival Great Eastern route to Southend opened much later on 1 October 1889. F Moore was the collective name of a studio of artists operating in the first two decades of the 20th century. They produced many paintings and painted photographs of steam locomotives, prior to the advent of colour photography.
