Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Y3086E/2

Scope and Contents

344 x 261 mm. A view of the station buildings and entrance, with railway officials and a horse cab standing in front of the station. Opened in January 1881: 'It was built at the end of Smollett Street ... The handsomest structure of its kind in the Colony. It is constructed of red and white bricks of exceptionally excellent manufacture, dressed with cement and surmounted by a clocktower 80 feet high' (NSW Registrar-General's Office 1886, p.98).

Albury lies in the far south of New South Wales, just north of the Victorian border, and was at this time a rapidly expanding vine growing and wool-producing area.
