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