Angel Road station looking east in 1949, the main line runs south (right) to north. Two platforms are seen on the north side of Angel Road. The booking office is at street level on the viaduct with steps down to each platform. Brick buildings are seen close to the souther end of each platform that on the down side is substantially longer than the up side building. The good yard is seen behind the down platform with sidings passing either side of a large goods shed; the goods office is at the south end of the shed. Angel Road South signal box is seen at the north end of the up platform, this was abolished in 1926 and the building put to a new use. Angel Road Junction signal box is in the V of the junction with the Edmonton line curving to the north west. A siding runs diagonally away from the main line on the east side of the station this serves Wireless and Furniture works. The substantial range of buildings to the east of the station comprise a clothing factory and furniture works, neither are rail connected. A number of parallel sidings are seen on the west side of the North Circular Road, these served the gas works which is out of view to the south. Albany Road is seen on the west side of the sidings. At its junction with the North Circular the Blue Anchor pub (formerly The Railway Tavern) stood opposite the junction. This was demolished after being damaged by a V1 flying bomb which landed nearby in 1944. Click here for a larger version.
