A fascinating photograph, probably taken in the 1890s, of a major London railway terminus. At the height of the Victorian railway boom, companies competed for passengers and many built grand London stations which were as much status symbols as places to board a train. Victoria Station was a joint venture between several companies who needed a London terminus and opened in 1862. It’s interesting that passengers could step off the train and get into their (horse-drawn) taxicab, just a few feet away, for the onward journey ….. transport interchanges are not new!
