Do people still send postcards these days…?

Highbury Station

Highbury Station     Old Cock Tavern Pub on the left     Early 1900s

Published by Cornflower for Islington Local History Centre

Received this from a pal who lives nearby and often sends interesting postcards my way. Jill writes that, “There is a vestige of the former grandeur still at Highbury station on the left right next to The Cock pub – a little bit of Corinthian pilaster!” Worth a look if you’re passing by. I’m a great nostalgic but even without rose-tinted spectacles you have to agree that this is a better looking station than the one that stands there now, especially with that awful Post Office stuck in front of it.
