I picked up this history of early American railway stations from the second-hand bookshop at Polesden Lacey. A mere £3 curiosity, with some interesting text, pictures and drawings, it also serves the purpose of tipping my annual total of books read to a new record, 84. But hey, it’s only a number, eh?
I just had to post a link to a blog post about this amazing building. Maybe it’s time to take up bingo!
Finally, Battersea Power Station is being redeveloped! The station ceased producing electricity in 1983. It’s a Grade II listed building and is the largest brick building in Europe. For a while you could visit the inside of the derelict building (see the second image). But now, development is under way – see the image and video below.
