Cast Iron Roof: Liverpool Street Station
Cast Iron Roof: Liverpool Street Station
Liverpool Street station was designed by Great Eastern Railway's chief engineer, Edward Wilson and was built by John Mowlem & Co. on a site which had been occupied by Bethlem Royal Hospital (Bedlam) from the 13th - 17th Centuries. The station was built in 1874 to serve east London, Essex and East Anglia. The spectacular roof was built by The Fairburn Engineering Company, it was modernised between 1985 and 1992. In the 1950s the decoration was removed from the capitals and thankfully were reinstated with the help of The Railways Heritage Trust. I've seen a photo of the stripped capitals by John Gay in a book on London's Historic Railways Stations by John Betjeman. It's like a majestic gothic cathedral and is very beautiful.

Iron loco: Centenary of SJ, the Swedish State Railways, Stockholms Centralstation
"Svenska Jarnvagsmannaforbundets Gava vid SJs 100-arsjubileum 1956" is what it says on the sheet iron plaque below the very ancient locomotive depicted in cast iron. For those of you who do not understand Swedish, this was to commemorate the centenary of the Swedish Railways, which was formed as a state owned company in 1856 (Statens Jarnvagar literally means "the State's Railways"). This too is part of the decorations attached to the railing around the central, circular hole in the floor of the main hall, Stockholm Central (the Underground is on the level below). Date of sculpture: 1959. The name of the sculptor is Stig Blomberg.
