This is an advertisement for Cooper, Cooper and Co. tea manufacturers. During the Victorian period tea became Britain's most popular drink. It was recognised as an invaluable drink for the working classes as it was cheap, non-alcoholic and could provide nourishment for those working long hours. But tea was enjoyed by all classes of society. This advert is obviously aimed at the more wealthy members of the population, the women drinking the tea are travelling in a first class train carriage and are fashionably dressed. It is during this period that the British custom of taking afternoon tea is believed to have started.
