Nottingham Midland Station 28th August 1976

Another view of Station Road with the earlier Midland Railway buildings which were superceded by the 1903 main entrance on Carrington Street.

 

The new trams currently terminate on the Great Central Railway blue-brick viaduct behind the camera to the left. I assume this footbridge has been removed & replaced by the one from the tram stop to the station. Now that the Nottingham tramway system has received the go-ahead to extend presumably a new bridge will be built across the top of Midland station. What a waste to have pulled the GC bridge down in the first place. Another prime example of a lack of forward thinking although no doubt if the bridge had been left it would have had no maintenance for 40 years & need knocking anyway.

 

The cars are interesting: a Lotus Elan heads a line up of a Morris Marina, Austin A60 van, Vauxhall Chevette (I thnk) & an Austin 1800. Don't see many of these around these days!
