Manchester Mayfield in the LNWR period.

Recommended Posts

I was looking at a few photos today & came across 1 of mayfield station I took off the platform of picadilly which got me thinking.

 

I decided to see if there are any photographs of Mayfield during the lnwr period. I've found many of it in its deralict state & the odd picture from the end of steam. I can't find any photographs of the station at an earlier period & wondered if there was any either on the Internet or in books. It would be nice to see the station in all its glory rather than wreck & ruin.

 

Cheers

Best I can find in my collection I'm afraid.

 

Station opened in 1910 and was bomb-damaged during the war - so both the above pics show it looking a little dilapidated.
