Taylor Booking Clerk, Bert Cartwright Senior Goods Clerk, Tony? Junior Goods  
Clerk, Jack? Porter and Bridget? Lady Porter.'
Just remembered: we also had another Jack ?signalman and Ken Hollingsworth signalman.  

 

Are you certain that this is

Are you certain that this is Spondon station? It looks a lot different to other photo's you have on this site.

I have now checked carefully

I have now checked carefully my original picture and find that there is a bit missing from the picture entered on the SHS site.

On the lefthand side of the picture there is part of a station sign ending NDON and the corner of the station house.

The angle of my picture does not take in the building where the booking/parcels and goods offices were located.

After a re look I am now sure this is Spondon Station.

Hope this helps.
