Pictures from our archives, taken on Locomotive & Carriage Institution tours and visits.

Unfortunately no further details are available for this picture.  Possibly GNR/LNER coach in the background?

Again, no further details, though it appears to be a Southern Railway Locomotive beside the group

Thanks to a viewer of this website getting in touch having been loaned a report entitled "Locomotive and Carriage Institution of Great Britain - Educational Visit to the Belgian National State Railways, Saturday 13th May 1933" produced by a Mr. Morgan it would appear that this photo was taken  on Monday 16th May 1933 when the Institution visited Antwerp, staying in the Hotel Centuary, described as "a most palatial hotel, with its luxurious lounge, cabaret floor and bedrooms with private bathrooms and telephones".

This picture is marked on the back: "LON MERTENS PHOTOS INDUSTRIELLES et REPORTAGES PHOTOGRAPHIQUES 22, Rue Delin, 22 ANVERS.  This translates to LEON MERTENS, INDUSTRIAL PHOTOGRAPHS and ILLUSTRATED REPORTS 22, Rue Delin, 22 ANTWERP.

This picture is taken on Platform 2 of Victoria Station.  An advert on the platform refers to the 1935 Brussels World Exhibition.  The clock in the background is showing the time as 4.15.  So, presumably this is a gathering at Victoria before catching a boat train for a late evening crossing of the channel.
