A view to Plumstead in 1959
A view to Plumstead in 1959
Taken from the recently extended Up platform at Woolwich Arsenal station on a damp and dull day in 1959, looking eastwards towards Plumstead station. Sidings on both sides of the track still existed then, as did the signal box just right of centre. See TQ4478 : Straight from Woolwich to Belvedere for a rather more recent (and sunny) picture!
Taken in TQ4378, but from just beyond the signal box onwards is in TQ4478.
A closer view of the signal box can be found on TQ4378 : Woolwich Arsenal Signal Box in 1959.
