Paddington Station, 1937


“In Britain, a cup of tea is the answer to every problem.
Fallen off your bicycle? Nice cup of tea.
Your house has been destroyed by a meteorite? Nice cup of tea and a biscuit.
Your entire family has been eaten by a Tyrannosaurus Rex that has travelled through a space/time portal? Nice cup of tea and a piece of cake. Possibly a savoury option would be welcome here too, for example a Scotch egg or a sausage roll.” David Walliams, Mr. Stink.

This square was cut from a National Railway Museum Diary given to my mam, then given to me unused. Published by Frances Lincoln Limited, 2014. It shows a passenger at a refreshment trolley, Paddington Station, 1937.
