Picture of the week: cleaning the signals

It's the turn of Belinda Morris, our Interpretation Manager, to choose a photo from our 4000-strong online collection.

Signal cleaning, about 1939

Belinda says:

I remember coming across this image when I researched my first exhibition at the museum. What I love about it is the sense of scale it portrays – that the signals are lifesize. I will also confess to wanting the lens cleaner to strike a pose so he looks like a third signal with his arm out in front. I like to think he did that before the serious shot was taken.

This photo is from our Euston collection – check out the 698 other photos from the collection that we have online.
