Female Refreshment Attendant, c. 1918

A member of Refreshment Department staff is photographed manning the platform trolley at Paddington Station circa 1918. Photographs such as this, showing female workers employed in traditionally male roles, regularly appeared in the GWR Magazine during the war years. Whether this was a demonstration of pride or intrigue at women undertaking such work, it is difficult to judge
