The Railway Station, 1897.
The Railway Station, 1897. The station staff and travellers are frozen in a moment in time as they pose for the photographer at the local station. This must have been during Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee celebrations, as at the entrance to the platform there is a foliage arch, topped with the letters VR above the royal coat of arms. There is much to see, from the numerous advertisements to the man with the hand cart. Little has changed here, although electric lighting and a telephone kiosk are inventions that would appear here at a later date( from Paul De`Ath "around Bradford on Avon")
