Between 1901 and 1926
This postcard sized photograph appeared on the Dundonald
Historical Society Facebook group. If you know who the original owner is I’d be
grateful so I can acknowledge them.
The picture is taken looking westward towards Belfast. It looks like
the photograph wasn’t the best quality and it has been retouched to enhance things
like the edges of the buildings. (In those days photo editing was achieved by
scrapping the negative with a knife or drawing and applying paint!).
This is the oldest known view of the station. Note the platform
lighting still using the original gas light style which was changed to
electric lights. A crossover is just visible at the bottom of the picture and
all the building appear in their final form which dates the view between 1901
It looks like the photograph has been taken on the occasion of
some works being carried out based on the number of workmen gathered on the track
bed of the railway.
