Siberian Train? | Gwulo: Old Hong Kong

Siberian Train?

Siberian Train?


This is probably wrong but the  picture here was always known as the Siberian Train when we were shown it many years ago.

The ladies - my grandmother Annie Louisa, aunt Ethel in middle with Uncle Charlie beside her at least, seem to have plenty of fur on! On far left is my grandfather John Olson who seems well insulated against the cold.

I do not know the other couple who do not seem to be as well wrapped up. Perhaps they were saying goodbye.


Date picture taken (may be approximate): 
Thursday, January 1, 1920


Hi Sean,

Thanks for posting. I'm at the end of a slow internet connection so can't see the photo at the moment, but hopefully one of our readers that knows about trains will be able to confirm whether it is the Trans-Siberian or not.

Regards, David
