Stationmaster and his family at Finmere, Buckinghamshire

Stationmaster and his family at Finmere, Buckinghamshire

L2507. A quite memorable photograph, taken of a Great Central Stationmaster and his family as they pose in front of their home by Finmere Station. Up on the embankment on the right of the picture can be seen the station buildings themselves, including the modest platform canopy around the ticket office. (The station was in fact built more than a mile to the south west of Finmere, and was closer to the village of Newton Purcell.) In common with much of London Extension architecture, speed and economy dictated that the Stationmaster's houses should all be built to a single standard design. Their size and quality mean that most are still lived in today.
