Baltimore and Ohio Railroad dining car experience

DININGONTHEB&o

DININGONTHEB&02

In the photo above from Greco and Spence, Dining on the B&O, the caption reads in part: “The young man seated at dinner on the Royal Blue does not appear pleased that the camera has caught his dad cutting his food, something he would have done for himself at home. But this is “polite company” and the folks are taking measures to avoid the chance of public embarrassment.”

I don’t think the caption is quite right. The kid would be pissed off even without a camera present.
