Now I have no intention of rehearse the history of London Road Railway Station of the campaign to save it.
That has been done much better by others over the years. Instead I shall just post some of Andy Robertson’s excellent pictures of the place which he took today as the sun was cracking the paving stones and I was indoors being Mr Boring.
Those with a pretence to being hip called it ColCom while we who weren’t settled on the more appropriate “College of Knowledge”. Either way it did me alright as did Bert’s cafe.
Later when watching Stanley Baker in the film Hell is a City I recognised the entrance he left as the Whitworth side of the Fire Station.
Location London Road, Manchester
Pictures; London Road, 2016 from the collection of Andy Robertson
