London Cannon Street

 In Britain, Daily Ticket, London, Platform, Southern Platform

This is a Southern Railway platform ticket for London Cannon Street station. Sadly it has no date, but the Southern Railway was nationalised into British Railways from the beginning of 1948. The (No.3) refers to the ticket window it was issued from. The ticket also has a circular clip at the number 7 which might relate to the original time someone bought the ticket, or might be a coincidence.

Cannon Street survived intact until World War 2 but then suffered 20 years of destruction at the hands of the bombs and corrupt developers. It lost its glass, then its roof, then its frontage building. Now the landmark twin towers survive on the north bank of the Thames and it has offices topped by an exclusive garden above its platforms. Read more here.

I help people and businesses organise their marketing, which saves time and stress. As part of this I created a straightforward way to help people develop anecdotes, which are the building blocks to confidence and assertiveness in groups of people. I help people strengthen their small-talk for social situations such as networking events and elsewhere. Stories about places are a great way to begin. Get in touch if want to start telling great stories.
