  • I have just noticed that the station clock on the 1935 picture and the 1950 picture are showing exactly the same time 11.35. What a coincidence!

  • The flag is also similar to the NATO flag (1953) – see it on Wikipedia. The Festival of Britain flag (1951) can also be seen on Wikipedia.

  • I think John is right..that is definitely a festival of Britain flag, held in London through the summer of 1951..so it could have been Tilbury Riverside Stations way of celebrating

  • One of the flags is similar to the Festival of Britain logo.
