Description

Postcard, after a painting by F Moore, showing the 'Brighton Belle', a London, Brighton and South Coast Railway (LB&SCR) luxury Pullman train, headed by 4-4-2 locomotive no 41. The LB&SCR, also known as the 'Brighton', played an important part in the growth in popularity of Brighton as a seaside resort after its formation from the amalgamation of the London & Brighton and London & Croydon Railways in 1846. It became part of the Southern Railway (SR) in 1923. 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.
