This vintage Great Western Railway carriage holds a significant historical significance as it was involved in the Fowey strike of that year. The photograph captures the essence of an era long gone, with its intricate detailing and unique design. As we delve into this image, our eyes are drawn to the intriguing graffiti adorning the side of the coach which reads "Uncle Toms Cabin, 7 to 8pm, Money lent". This unexpected addition adds a touch of mystery and intrigue to an already fascinating piece of history.

This print transports us back to a bygone era when rail travel was at its peak. It serves as a reminder of how much transportation has evolved over time while preserving artifacts from our rich heritage.
