A Water Colour of St Pancras Station by Claude Buckle

Carriage print of St Pancras Station London
Another very fine water colour painting that Claude Buckle made for the Carriage Print railway architectural series. The picture perfectly captures the sweeping Victorian facade of the station. The station has however had a charmed life. It was bombed in the second world war and narrowly missed demolition in 1960 when the less fortunate main line station Euston (also a Carriage Print) was destroyed. St John Betjeman was instrumental in saving St Pancras and there is no doubt that without his intervention the building would have suffered the same fate as Euston Station.

St Pancras railway station, also known as London St Pancras and since 2007 as St Pancras International the Eurostar terminal,is a railway station terminus known for its Victorian architecture. The Grade I listed building stands on Euston Road in St Pancras, London Borough of Camden, between the British Library, King's Cross station and the Regent's Canal.

Created in 1951.
