The grand exterior of Norwich (Thorpe) station on 20th June 1976, clearly dated by the range of automobile design on display. There was originally a hipped roof on the left hand side to balance that on the right, but it was damaged during an air raid in the WWII and replaced with a flat roof until a general rebuilding restored the original design some 20 years after the date of this photo. In comparison, the Luftwaffe did a much more comprehensive job on Norwich City station in 1942, putting it well beyond any hope for architectural restoration.
