MANCHESTER VICTORIA - A PICTORIAL HISTORY

This excellent booklet provides a pictorial review of the first 175 years of the station's operation, from its origins in the 1840s through to 2019. Victoria was the headquarters station of the Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway and became the busiest outside London. It continued to thrive under the LMS until badly damaged during an air raid in 1940. The BR period saw the station's fortunes decline but there has been a resurgence in the 21st century with the major tram interchange, a new roof and electrification. All the photos are beautifully reproduced and have extensive captions full of historical detail. Highly recommended.
