Annotation

Part of the Great Eastern Railway World War I memorial. Prior to the restoration of the station the various memorials stood elsewhere. One can see that the arrangement has been rather cobbled together - the lift would not have been part of any original design. The frieze, Great Eastern Railway, comes from Harwich House.
