This is the glory that was Birmingham Snow Hill station. Opened by the Great Western Railway in 1852 and closed (after a lingering death) by British Rail 120 years later, a new station opened in 1987, but without the charm of the original.
A southbound goods drifts through on 1st October 1950, scanned from a 6x6cm size negative taken by the late Mervyn Mason, now in my collection.
About Vintage Stuff
The aim of Vintage Stuff is to display some of the ephemera that I have collected, often inadvertently, over the years. I am now deliberately seeking out interesting old adverts, screen shots, leaflets, obscure record covers, picture postcards and illustrations; anything that catches my eye, in fact. They will be mainly, but not exclusively of UK origin (so many vintage blogs appear to be American) and almost always a scan from something that I actually have in my collection, rather than off the net. If you do re-blog, please acknowledge the source. Further stuff, mainly photographs, can be found on my Flickr pages, via the Benny Hill record cover.
