My school (UCS) organized a trip to the Brighton Works of the Southern Railway.
By this date, the title was officially the Southern Region of British Railways.

Brighton Loco Works, visited as part of a school trip. This photo and the next show molten gunmetal being poured. Although taken in 1950, the photo would have been very similar if taken in 1900. The workers are wearing shirts and ties, and have bare arms and heads, and have no eye protection!
