EDITORS COMMENTS
In this print from Memory Lane Prints, we are transported back to the morning of March 23rd, 1970, aboard the iconic Brighton Belle train. The image captures a fascinating culinary moment as kippers make their triumphant return to the breakfast menu. However, it seems that even esteemed actor Sir Laurence Olivier, a regular patron of the car dining experience, had different tastes in mind. Standing proudly beside a table adorned with an array of delectable dishes is Chef Arthur Evans. With his skilled hands holding up a plate of perfectly cooked kippers, he presents them to Sir Laurence Olivier who politely declines in favor of scrambled eggs on brown toast. This intriguing interaction between chef and patron showcases both the dedication of Chef Arthur Evans to providing exceptional cuisine and Sir Laurence's discerning palate. The photograph exudes an air of nostalgia with its vintage charm and offers us a glimpse into the luxurious world of rail travel during the 1970s. It reminds us that even amidst grandeur and opulence, personal preferences still reign supreme when it comes to matters as simple yet significant as breakfast choices. Geofrey Day's expertly captured moment encapsulates not only a specific time but also highlights how food can bring people together or set them apart - even within such refined settings as those found aboard the Brighton Belle train.
