Repro ID: H6033
Description: This handsome Italianate building, completed in 1847, was built to serve the Eastern Counties Railway extension from Canning Town to North Woolwich. From here, passengers could walk to North Woolwich Pier and transfer to a steamship or ferry. The building is now owned by the Passmore Edwards Museum Trust, and houses the North Woolwich Old Station Museum. This houses items associated with the Great Eastern Railway, including a restored ticket office.
