Description

Rats and mice were a perennial problem in warehouses, stores, stations and signal boxes so ratcatchers were numbered amongst the railway staff. Here Jim Forty and Alfred Greenwin show off the traps and poisons of their trade in St Pancras goods yard, along with their canine asistants Jill, Sally and Tiny, and a selection of rats who did not get away.
