EDITORS COMMENTS
In this photo print, we are transported back to the vibrant year of 1972 at Finsbury Park station. The image showcases a remarkable transformation taking place within the world of business and travel. Standing proudly on the platform is none other than a first-class carriage from the iconic Brighton Belle train of the 1930s, now owned by City Industrial Ltd. This vintage masterpiece has been ingeniously repurposed into an exclusive VIP restaurant, catering to esteemed business executives hailing from all corners of the globe. As we observe this snapshot in time, three individuals grace us with their presence: Ken Adams, representing Barclays Bankers; Sam Morris, the visionary Managing Director behind City Industrial Limited; and his capable secretary Daphne Hunt. The scene exudes sophistication and elegance as these influential figures gather for what promises to be an extraordinary meeting over lunch. With its rich history and opulent interior preserved meticulously, this unique dining experience aboard a moving train undoubtedly adds allure to any high-level discussion or negotiation. As we delve deeper into our collective memory lane, let us appreciate Alisdair MacDonald's artistry in capturing this momentous occasion. This photograph serves as a testament to innovation intersecting with tradition – where rail transport meets fine dining – forever etching itself into the annals of both business and travel history.
