I don't think that the top picture (Will's not Falkors) could be from 1946 - weren't the water towers demolished at the start of the war?

Magnificent photographs, thanks Falkor/Will.

I never realised that the sheds for the old station were so big.

You're probably right, Thomas!

all that debris as well!
no, this must have been taken not long after the fire, before the war, probably!
