A rather pleasing and uncomplicated piece, redolent of LS Lowry in its sparse lack of complexity. The world’s first railway station – circa 1830 – is just up the road, as the terminus of the Manchester-Liverpool line; hence its name and the title herewith. The perpendicular lines of the old, gas street lamps foreshadow the looming Beetham Tower in the background, lend a bygone feel to this piece of Salford.
