Putney Bridge

A really rather nice and very well preserved or restored station. The first time I visited I was just getting stuck in here and would have spent some time taking pictures but suddenly the station filled up with police and the general feeling was that one should move along now, nothing to see here. I realised a little further up the line, because suddenly all the trains were jam packed with passengers of a certain type, that the reason for the police presence was the end of a nearby football match at the nearby Craven Cottage Stadium, home of Fulham FC. I went back and snapped you a few more shots on another quieter
afternoon. The station started life in 1880 as Putney Bridge & Fulham, which was fair enough as it is on the Fulham rather than Putney side of the river. For nine years it was a terminus for the Metropolitan District before the railway pressed on to Wimbledon. Even after two visits my rather snatched photography doesn’t do it justice the station building is rather imposing as befitting a one-time journey’s end.
