Early days

This looks like a scene from the earliest days of the station. A train arrives, presumably at Platform 2 (the tunnel from Lime Street is in the background). A large number of men and women in Victorian dress prepare to board the train, while many others on what is presumably Platform 3 await their own train - one man is rather foolishly stepping onto the track. On Platform 2, two pet dogs can be seen, while the locomotive driver looks back and the fireman climbs out of the cabin as porters load the luggage onto the top of carriages. From a balcony in the station building, a man, presumably the station master, looks on
