Imagine your photograph being on the cover of a classic like Howards End in a hundred years or so…

“Like many others who have lived long in a great capital, she had strong feelings about the various railway termini. They are our gates to the glorious and the unknown. Through them they pass out into adventure and sunshine, to them, alas! we return… And he is a chilly Londoner who does not endow his stations with some personality, and extend to them, however shyly, the emotions of fear and love.”

E. M. Forster, Howards End
