|Source 1B is a photograph of Inverness
station platform, taken about 1906.|
Study the document and answer the following questions.
1. Find two pieces of evidence to show that
large numbers of people travelled by train.
2. Study the railway
carriages carefully. How are they different from modern railway carriages? How
would this make travelling by train different from travelling by train today?
3. A hundred years ago, people put on their best clothes to travel. What
evidence can you see in the photograph to show this?
4. Can you
find out how trains were powered at this time?
