Kingsbury and Neasden station opened in 1880 as part of the extension of the Metropolitan Railway - the first underground railway to be built in London. Although the Metropolitan Line still runs through the station, it is now only served by the Jubilee Line.

The photograph was taken with the Kodak camera - a simple, leather-covered wooden box designed for amateur use, which produced circular snapshots two and a half inches in diameter. The camera was sold pre-loaded with film, when the whole film had been exposed the camera was sent back to Kodak who developed it, returning the prints and the reloaded camera.
