Object No.72

This carriage window is etched with the Britannia design. This was the emblem of the London & North Western Railway Company and as part of the Company crest appeared on many objects connected to the Company. Etched glass was particularly popular at that time and was very common for Pub windows – The Royal Engineer in Stratford Road used to have a run of etched glass lower windows.
