(lost) Deptford Station

Inscription

Deptford Station, opened 8th February 1836, London's oldest working railway station.

August 2019: We were informed by Ste Ríkharðsson via Facebook that the plaque went missing following the renovation of the station in 2012. We are lucky we'd captured it just the year before.
