EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back to the 1920s, offering a glimpse into the past at Wishford Station near Salisbury in Wiltshire. The image showcases the station's second platform, which was constructed in 1901 when the railway line doubled its capacity. Wishford Station, established in 1856, played an integral role in connecting the surrounding villages of Great Wishford and Little Wishford with the rest of England. Serving as a vital transportation hub for nearly a century, this historic site witnessed countless journeys and shared precious memories. The station building itself stands proudly against the backdrop of lush greenery that characterizes Wiltshire's countryside. Its architecture exudes timeless charm and hints at an era long gone by. Meanwhile, diligent station staff members can be seen bustling about their duties on this bustling platform. A notable feature captured within this photograph is the covered footbridge that spans across both platforms. This architectural marvel not only adds aesthetic appeal but also offers convenience to passengers navigating between trains. Sadly, like many other stations during that time period, Wishford Station met its demise in 1955 when it closed its doors forever. However, through images such as these preserved by STEAM Museum of GWR (not the company), we are able to cherish and appreciate our rich railway heritage while paying homage to those who once traveled through these very tracks.
