Notes on the Geography of The United Kingdom: Birmingham: Photo 29

world pictures The United Kingdom: Birmingham

Railways gradually strangled the canals. Here's the Curzon Street station of the London and Birmingham Railroad. Superceded in 1854 by the New Street station, itself now demolished, the Curzon Street station was a warehouse office until 1966. Empty since then, it's considered the world's oldest monumental railway station. You want to know when it was built? Just ask: 1837.
