Building    From 1868 

St Pancras Station

Categories: Engineering

From the picture source website: "St Pancras train station was designed by William Barlow in 1863, with construction commencing in 1866. The famous Barlow train shed arch spans 240 feet and is over 100 feet high at its apex. On its completion in 1868 it became the largest enclosed space in the world." The red brick gothic confection that many people think of as St Pancras Station is actually the Midland Grand Hotel, designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott and built 1868-76.
