Great Central Station, Leicester

Great Central Station, Leicester

Back to the story
L1737. A quiet moment at Leicester Central Station. The precise date of the picture is unknown, but since the posters on the wall bear the name 'Great Central Railway', the photograph must have been taken prior to 1923, after which the company was absorbed into the London & North Eastern Railway. Interestingly, there is no clock face installed in the tower.
