    Continuing its discussion of pursuits not detailed in Bradshaw's Monthly Railway Guide, assesses some of the pictures to be admired in the fictional 'Charing Cross Gallery', one of which, 'Families Removing' by Mr Taylor, shows a small steam locomotive pulling a large carriage marked 'Families Removing'. Praises the artist for capturing 'the unchanging sea side by side with the variable steam-spirit of the age'. The other illustration shows three anthropomorphous steam locomotives, reading books and playing with a hoop.
