Blackfriars Station

I go through Blackfriars Station several times a week and sometimes more than twice a day, but it was only today that I spotted the great carved sandstone lettering commemorating the destinations that could be reached when the London, Chatham and Dover Railway originally opened what was called St. Paul’s Station in 1886 (the name was only changed in 1937).   I like the idea that one could take the train to Cannes, Deal or Sheerness:-
