Birmingham New Street Station: lnwrbns_str1785
View from the Wolverhampton end of Platform 6, formerly
Platform 3, showing the station canopies over the platforms and Queens Hotel
towering above on the left. Unlike the extension the original station had few
passenger facilities and buildings on the platforms after the roof was
dismantled the station always had a bare and desolate air to it. The timber
buildings on both platforms were for station staff to use for storage etc. on
the left between Platforms 4 and 5 can be seen one of the ramps to the subway.
