The B&W Photography Project Week 62

The B&W Photography Project Week 62 with PODCast and this week I’m stepping back in time, to a time when there would be a newsagents on a railway platform.

The B&W Photography Project Week 62

W H Smith don’t seem to have the same stranglehold they did over newsagents stores, that they did in my childhood.  Their first train station kiosk opened in Euston in 1848.  They just seem so much nicer than the ‘shops’ we have today don’t they.

This one can be found at Pickering Station on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway and it was shouting out to be photographed in black and white.  I can just see the queue now – travellers wanting the morning newspaper, a packet of cigarettes or a good book to read on their journey.

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure. If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.
