A post-WW2 shot of Stanier 5XP Jubilee class 4-6-0 no. 5616 Malta GC paired with a Fowler tender which Vic Smith has defined as Souldrop on the climb to Sharnbrook. This is an Up Midland Main Line express at Back Lane bridge. The telegraph poles on the right mark the route of the lower level slow lines. Railway Cottage visible on the left.
I've owned this negative for many years and have always been fascinated by the lone female observer.
