Both station interiors and exteriors are depicted and the comparative perspectives among early and modern constructions and infrastructure supply a desirable perception into social and architectural change.
The first public railway to function in England (albeit horse-drawn) used to be opened during this county in 1803. The 8-mile-long slim gauge Surrey Iron Railway carried items from Wandsworth to Croydon for over 40 years from the factories and companies which mushroomed in the course of these pivotal years of business and advertisement development.
Unlike in Sussex, the place the London, Brighton & South Coast Railway reigned very best, Surrey used to be criss-crossed by means of strains operated by way of not just that corporation but in addition through the South japanese Railway and the London & South Western Railway. Their uneasy co-existence sometimes flared into critical disputes over territories. this present day, in contrast, 4 operators deal with this complicated and critical community in a spirit of harmony.
Readers will benefit from the early photos, many formerly unpublished, of stations during this quantity. They depict a misplaced period and velocity of existence and, displayed in cautious distinction with their present-day equivalents, represent a huge pictorial contribution to the historical past of railways south of London.
