I was musing on what might be of interest to blog readers and, in the absence of trains and any other inspiration, I though people might like to see some of the ‘original’ photographs of the Ticket Office building – before and during restoration. Many of the pictures are courtesy of Bob Stark and I have asked him to provide me with some captions – where the content isn’t obvious or the volunteers aren’t named. There are quite lot of photos so I will blog them in batches and, in due course, may add these, plus some accompanying text, to our Recent History tab on the website. There was no obvious categorization when I came to look through the photos and it will take a little while but, in the meantime, here is a small selection of some of the snaps. There will be familiar faces amongst the workers, albeit looking a decade or 2 younger!
I’m always interested to hear what others think on these subjects of recording, promoting and preserving the historical aspects of this station, so feel free to comment if you have views – initially via the contact tab on this website.
