The annual tradition of posting a different vintage image each day during advent, and this year, it’s of London’s old railway stations.
Opened in 1867, the station closed in 1944 when bombing cut the railway link up to Dalston Junction.
The station was demolished in late 1960s when the A12 was built alongside the railway. The road shown here is now a footbridge and the station building replaced with 1980s houses.
SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE
This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.
It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.
Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.
