KX/StP • Bird’s Eye View • c1935

This is photograph of the stations at King’Cross and St Pancras in London, from about 1935.

Both of the main stations have been comprehensively modernised: St Pancras has the Eurostar London terminus, and a huge new extension, KX has a large courtyard and extension. The StP goods area is now theBritish Library and the Crick Institute.

The bottom-left quadrant is now part of the KX campus, which includes Google, Facebook, Camden, and many other large organisation. You can just see the Regent’s Canal in the very bottom left corner of the image. Cartwright Gardens, the lovely crescent of Burton houses is in the top-right.
