Title

Huddersfield Station Interior - DNT00278

Description

Date unknown but a woman in early 20th century dress is just discernible standing among the waiting passengers. The L&YR signs include ‘Ladies Third Class Waiting Room’ and ‘Ladies First and Second Class Waiting Room’; the L&YR belatedly abolished Second Class in 1912.



When built in 1846/50 there was only one platform behind the magnificent station frontage and the station was not enlarged until 1886; in August 1885 the roof had collapsed during enlargement construction killing four men. The extended station included an island platform seen here on the left.
