LMS Route: Evesham to Birmingham
Redditch Station: mrred1397
An Edwardian photograph of Redditch station's staff with the
Station Master seated in the centre. To the station master's left, wearing the
trilby style of hat, is the Goods Agent, a very important man being responsible
for generating revenue from goods traffic into and out of Redditch. The lack of
badges or other markings on jackets makes it difficult to identify whether the
majority of the above personnel are station staff or from the goods yard.
Whilst station staff are easily distinguishable because of their headwear the
non uniformed people may still be station staff but not wearing regulation
hats, being on their way home for example.
