The photograph shows a man in uniform standing behind a large desk in an office. In the background on the left is a large brown wooden frame set into the wall. It has a hatchway in which there is a black metal grill. Through the grill can be seen daylight.

Slightly left of centre stands a high wooden panelled door in brown. The wall is peach coloured and has its corner to the right of the door. On the right wall is a large brown sash window with a horizontal bar across the centre. A number green trees can be seen indistinctly through this window.
In front of the window stands a cabinet consisting of a lower cupboard and a section above with compartments in which tickets and other documents are stored.

In the centre stands a man dressed in a black uniform of a 1913 station master. Both hands are resting on a large office desk. It has a green leather top with a brown wooden border. On the desk are various trays and documents. TEXT.
