....but most probably won't be - this is probably my favourite site on the internet.

For those who don't know Shorpy is an American photo site with thousands of photos, mostly black and white and mostly from the early part of the twentieth century.  They are clickable to 'view full size' which is well worth doing.

This is the railway related part, which is full of views of structures, places, people etc. If you've got an hour it's well worth a look (in my opinion)

Some of my favourite stuff is right at the  end (click on last) - there are some colour photos by Jack Delano, well worth a look.

That site is one heck of a time waster. Just so many amazing images.

Never knew that, 1908 was the year of the central station. Fascinating site, cheers Phill.
