Photograph of the Royal Train, probably in Paris. Apartments in background behind railway wall. A man stands to right, next to a post, by the end of the train. This photograph is part of an album of prints presented to Queen Victoria and Prince Albert as a memento of their state visit to France from 18-27 August 1855. The album shows landmarks on the route of the Chemin de Fer du Nord, by which they travelled between Boulogne and Paris.
