Photograph showing one of the several British Railways totems
which displayed the station's name. On the left is one of the lamps used to
light the station. These glazed lanterns held an oil lamp which needed to be
lit and extinguished at dusk and dawn each day. The responsibility of filling
them with oil, trimming their wicks as well as lighting them and extinguishing
them lay with the station's most junior porter.
