In October 1868 the Metropolitan Railway opened a line extension from Paddington to Gloucester Road via Kensington High Street. This photograph shows the Gladstones and other eminent figures on a trial ride the previous July. Other members of the party include the MP Arthur Philip Stanhope, sculptor and poet Thomas Woolner and esteemed railway engineer Sir John Fowler. William Ewart and Catherine Gladstone are seated at the front and back of the last wagon respectively. Journalists were invited to record such events in the hope that the coverage would allay public concerns about the safety of the network.
