Dilapidated

Signal box at Liverpool Street Station, London, August 2019

This now disused signal box dates back to 1875 when it was opened for the operation of an extension of the Metropolitan Railway. It oozes history, given its key role in the development of the London Underground, and was granted Grade II Listed Building status in 2013.

      1. I think we should feel more about things are are falling away. I have an affinity for castle ruins and old fallen buildings because of the stories they spin in my mind … not always bad to feel sad!

  1. Your photos of Liverpool Street Station really brought back some memories. Growing up in Bethnal Green and Liverpool Street being only a few bus stopps away (the No. 8 bus) I knew the station well. It was even a place of interest to roam around in the evening with a few friends. I mean the old Liverpool Street main station in the early sixties, before it was modernised. There was a long stairway to the platforms. I only ever perhaps saw the place on your photos when I travelled on a train out of the station, usually to visit relatives somewhere in Essex. My grammar school was in Spitalfields market, so I often caught the bus home from Liverpool Street bus stop. Oh the memories of that place. Thanks for the photos.

    1. I wasn’t in London then and it still isn’t a station I use much. Back t certainly felt some of the life of those years when I stood looking at this old section. Delighted to have brought back those memories for you. And as for Spitaldields, it has completely changed now.

      1. My school was amalgamated with another. Only the hall remains and that was converted into a restaurant. Our playground was surrounded by the market which was cleared during the morning
