Female stewardess, 1917

A Dining Car Waitress in her crisp white apron stands in the doorway of dining car No. 9546 on Platform 2, Paddington Station in 1917. Rail travel during the war was not just restricted to essential journeys. Travel for pleasure continued according to Mr Guy Calthrop, General Manager of the London and North Western Railway, who was asked to represent all of the railway companies before the Man Power Distribution Board. In his report of October 1916 Mr Calthrop stated that there is an enormous amount of "joy-riding" on railways at the present time'; and facilities such as on-board dining for long journeys were as integral to the service the GWR offered its customers as before the war began

Barn owls chicks sit in a box in Israels Beit Shean Valley, near the border with Jordan

Barn owl chicks sit in a box in Israel's Beit Shean Valley, near the border with Jordan May 13, 2012. The chicks are the product of a joint Israeli-Jordanian project launched in 2002, to use barn owls as biological pesticides. Seven chicks, including the four pictured, were born after farmers in both neighbouring countries put out nesting boxes in their fields to encourage breeding. Picture taken May 13, 2012.
