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 May 1872 as part of the Lea Valley Lines, by the Eastern Counties Railway.
The station was demolished in the 1980s and replaced with a bland steel and glass box, while the road has been paved over for pedestrians.
It’s now part of the London Overground.
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.
