This is ''A'' Yard of Bricklayers Arms Goods Depot, in about 1970, showing to good effect just how vast the area was. This is a westward view - the former main engine shed complex, at the end of the branch, was about ¾-mile distant. Rolls Road to the left and Dunton Road Bridge would have been behind the person taking the picture. I remember it well.

Two of the three high-rise blocks on the Avondale Square estate are seen here: West Point and Centre Point. East Point can just be glimpsed behind the building in the foreground.
These are the Tower Blocks you can see from the railway yard.

Bricklayers Arms Station. Traffic was not attracted to the station, so a better service was provided at London Bridge, and by May, 1846, Bricklayers Arms had only two up and two down trains daily, each taking over four hours between London and Dover, conveying first, second, and third class passengers. These trains were withdrawn at the end of October of that year and ordinary passenger service in that station ceased for some years.

Included in the gift are two toy motor cars and 20 pieces of luggage containing dresses, shoes, handbags, gloves and underwear for the two dolls. Hundreds of thousands of schoolchildren subscribed to buy them to mark the recent visit of the King and Queen to France.
