Blackfriars Road station

What remains of the original Blackfriars station on the Charing Cross railway in London – this signage – was restored in 2005, and is clearly visible within a short distance of the current Tube station at Southwark. The site of the station, now referred to as Blackfriars Road in order to avoid confusion with the modern Blackfriars station on the opposite side of the river Thames, was only open for five years in the late nineteenth century before being replaced by the original Waterloo Junction station, now called Waterloo East.
