Three young schoolboys waiting with their luggage on a platform at Victoria railway station in London before returning to boarding school. Photo taken in 1969, probably in September. Photographer Tony Ray-Jones (1941-1972) created most of his images of the British at work and leisure between 1966 and 1969. Travelling around Britain, he recorded the unguarded moments of people from all sections of British society with a distinctive and highly individual style, combining humour and sadness.
