The photos are displayed all over the station
Photographs which span 100 years have gone on display at London's St Pancras Station.
The 40 rarely-seen images have been selected from the Press Association, a national news agency.
Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee portrait in 1897 will be the oldest shot in the Best Of British exhibition.
The free exhibition celebrates both the 140th anniversary of the Press Association and London's St Pancras Station this year.
Contemporary images include Britain's gold medal winners at Beijing and Prince Harry serving in Afghanistan.
Some of the photographs have not been seen since they were published decades ago.
Ordinary life, in the form of holiday-makers enjoying the sun on Bournemouth beach in 1946, a woman selling apples from a basket in 1923, and a family having a picnic on the side of the road after their car broke down, have also been captured.
British history is documented with Churchill addressing an audience in 1945, VE Day celebrations in the street, and a soldier kissing a child before leaving for France in 1914.
Photographs from the world of sport include David Beckham, Lewis Hamilton, Bobby Moore at Wembley in 1966, the last Olympics in Britain in 1948 and female archers at the 1908 London Olympics.
Press Association Photos assistant managing director Martin Stephens said: "We want visitors to the station to enjoy fabulous images of historical and current events in Britain that they may have seen in their lives."
Best Of British runs until the 26 September.
