Then and Now: East Brixton station 3
Photographic comparisons of old and modern views of Lambeth
Jan 1976 A view of the elevated westbound platform of East Brixton Station on Barrington Road showing the wooden platform buildings above. To make room for the new viaduct and station, the left hand side of the Victorian villa to the right of the picture was simply demolished when the railway arrived! Note the extended tall chimneys, designed to keep smoke from blowing into the booking office.
(With thanks to Nick Catford for the photo)
Feb 2004 Since closure in 1976, the platforms and platform buildings have been completely swept away, with only the polychromatic window arches serving as a reminder of the station's 110 year existence.
