Postcards of the Past


Victoria Railway Station, London


Victoria was originally two, separate railway stations. In 1858 the Victoria Station and Pimlico Railway extended its lines across the Thames from South London to a terminus in central London, just a short walk from Buckingham Palace. The London, Brighton and South Coast Railway (LBSCR) station opened on 1 October 1860, followed in 1862 by the London, Chatham and Dover Railway. The former, designed by Robert Jacomb-Hood was demolished and rebuilt in 1906 (and later redeveloped in 1979).
