Models posing in the compartment of a railway carriage which was actually parked in a convenient siding. The original photograph showed a railway carriage through the window. The finished print (seen here), was made to advertise Great Western Railway's 'Cornish Riviera' service from London to Penzance. The photograph was altered through the addition of a scenic view of St Michael's Mount in Cornwall placed over the window and then it was re-photographed. The evidence of this 'doctoring' can be seen at the window edges, along the curtains and around the man's head.
