taken 7 years ago, near to Battersea, Wandsworth, Great Britain

View from Queenstown Road station
View from Queenstown Road station
Queenstown Road station was opened on 1 November 1877, by the London & South Western Railway, and was originally named Queen's Road (Battersea). Queen's Road (Battersea) was renamed Queenstown Road (Battersea) in 1980, but now appears to just be called Queenstown Road. It has seven tracks but only three platforms, one of which is disused. This view is from Platform 3 across the through tracks to a rather interesting building on Queenstown Road, the left hand part of which is occupied by a firm called Bridal Alterations. The lines ahead lead to Waterloo whilst the bridge on the left carries trains from Victoria towards Wandsworth Road.
