L2549. Photographic engraving of King's Cross Underground Station. It is thought to be a scene from 1863, the year in which the Metropolitan Railway opened the world's first urban underground rail system. This station was one of seven original stops on that line. Note that both broad and standard gauge tracks have been laid here.
