The annual tradition of posting a different vintage image each day during advent, and this year, it’s of London’s old railway stations.

Marlborough Road

Marlborough Road

Opened in April 1868 as part of the Metropolitan line extension from Baker Street, it was closed in 1939 when the Bakerloo line (now Jubilee) opened a service at nearby St. John’s Wood station.

The building still remains in place, as an access point for London Underground staff.

SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but 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 its 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 your read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
