An official photograph of a ticket inspector at Paddington Station checking the ticket of a passenger on-board an outbound train in 1943. The famous clock located on Platform one at Paddington can be seen looming over the roof of the carriage. Unnecessary rail travel was discouraged in order that resources could be focused on the movement of troops and goods; and the government poster campaign asking “Is Your Journey Really Necessary?” became a common sight at most railway stations.
