Odd, there's no people in the picture or smoke from any locomotives.

I think just a quite moment when the photo was taken. There is a definite haze in the closer to the roof. Contrary to much popular ideas, stations like this were not generally filled with smoke.

Behind the 5 from the left roof support column, there is a locomotive, perhaps just arriving, with light smoke rising from it's stack.

There is also a ghostly looking figure standing at the middle horse's head, which is how a person might appear if moving during exposure.

Reckon the ghostly figure is because the horse lifted it's head.

Similar to the horse on the right which appears to have it's head down.

There again...............................................................

I'd guess very difficult lighting conditions requiring a very long exposure. :roll::roll:

If you imagine standing where the photographer is, it would be pretty dark and, to get the depth of field, he'd have used a tiny apperture - any kind of flash would be out of the question.  Film, in those days, needed holding up to the sun for an hour to register anything (;-)) so my guess is that, as Jim said, it was a fairly quiet period with not much in the way of train movements and the people have disappeared simply because the camera couldn't record them.  You could try it yourself if you dig out your old film cameras.  Load up some very slow film, shut the lens down to a pin-hole, set it on a tripod in a dark area on "B" setting and press the shutter.  After you've watched the Coronation Street Omnibus Edition, release the shutter ..............:lol::lol:  I'll guarantee you won't get any people (unless they too are watching the Coronation Street Omnibus Edition). :thumbs
