Manchester Victoria Station
Manchester Victoria Station
Manchester Victoria Station originally opened in 1844 by the Liverpool and Manchester Railway and the Manchester and Leeds Railway as a single platform building designed by George Stephenson. The present building, designed by William Davies and opened in 1909, has a 160 yard facade which still carries an iron and glass canopy bearing the names of the original destinations which it served and a tile map depicting the routes which operated from the station until 1923. These canopies served as covered waiting porch for taxi cabs until they were severely damaged in the 15 June 1996 IRA bomb blast. They have now been completely restored to their former glory.
