Woolwich Arsenal Signal Box in 1959
Woolwich Arsenal Signal Box in 1959
The signal box at Woolwich Arsenal Station, seen on a wet and gloomy day in 1959, one of my earliest railway photographs. Taken from the end of Parry Place, which in 1959 ran to the edge of the railway retaining wall. There is some patterning on the photo as I was taking it through a chain-link fence.
The signal box remained in use until March 1970.

The photo was scanned from a 2.25 inch square negative and has been cropped to remove most of the sky with its chain-link pattern.
