A Kodak circular snapshot photograph of a locomotive of the Metropolitan Railway, taken by an unknown photographer, c. 1890.

The Metropolitan Railway was the first underground railway to be built in London.

The photograph was taken with the Kodak camera - a simple, leather-covered wooden box designed for amateur use, which produced circular snapshots two and a half inches in diameter. The camera was sold pre-loaded with film, when the whole film had been exposed the camera was sent back to Kodak who developed it, returning the prints and the reloaded camera.
