Coronation Scot to tour United States and visit World's Fair A photograph of the train 'Coronation Scot', taken by Saidman in 1939 for the Daily Herald

A photograph entitled 'Coronation Scot to tour United States and visit World's Fair', taken in 1939 by Saidman for the Daily Herald.

The 'Coronation Scot' was a train of the LMS (London Midland and Scottish) railway, it toured the United States and visited the New York World's Fair in 1939.

Two Saidman brothers, Reuben and Barnet, worked as staff photographers for the Daily Herald. Their photographs are simply stamped 'Saidman' on the reverse, making it difficult to tell which of the brothers took the photograph.
