Description

Coloured lithograph taken from an engraving by Charles Hunt after Henry George Hine (1811-1895). Crowds of onlookers are shown waving at two steam locomotives, one of which is hauling a train full of pasengers. When the construction of the London & Brighton Railway began in 1838, its directors realised the importance of linking Brighton with the harbour at Shoreham, and built a branch line at the same time as the main line.
