Bridge over the Irwell, Victoria Station, Manchester, 1845 In 1838 Samuel Brooks

Bridge over the Irwell, Victoria Station, Manchester, 1845
In 1838 Samuel Brooks, vice-chairman of the Manchester and Leeds Railway (MLR) bought land at Hunt's Bank close to the cathedral and presented it to the company for a station to replace the inconveniently located Manchester Oldham Road railway station opened by the company on 3 July 1839. The station was initially a long, low single-storey building designed by George Stephenson and completed by John Brogden on 1 January 1844. It was named Victoria by permission of Her Majesty. The long single platform handled M&LR trains to Leeds and elsewhere at its eastern end. The Liverpool and Manchester Railway extended its line from Ordsall, near the original Manchester Liverpool Road railway station, and its trains operated from Victoria's western end from 4 May 1844
