Temple Meads

Arriving at Bristol Temple Meades
just off the Virgin train from Birmingham New Street

the white tile facing to the building washes down easily and keeps fresher than stone

I believe this GWR logo to be Edwardian about 1910

a classic bench with the Great Western Railway GWR lLogo from about 1920

I love this dramtic light

the refreshment room is spot lighted

the second train shed which was used for the Clifton branch line but is now a car park

elegant wind screens cut down driving rain and snow

this head is by the bus stop at the end of the oldest building

its companion has been stolen so I wanted to record it

After each Bunfight I await the train home here
