Victorian London - Transport - Railways, above ground - Stations - Eastern and North-Eastern Counties Railway Station (Shoreditch)

EASTERN AND NORTH-EASTERN COUNTIES RAILWAY STATION, SHOREDITCH, leads in two lines to Colchester and Ipswich, and Cambridge and Norwich. An excursion on the line as far as Stratford will enable the visitor to see as much, perhaps, as he will care to see of the squalid neighbourhoods of Spitalfields and Bethnal Green.
