Steaming Into Berowra’s History

The Age of Steam

This very interesting image of Berowra Station and surrounds was captured during the Age of Steam. It shows a short passenger train which has stopped near the old steps, longer trains stopped further along the station. Note the old glass lamps! The photograph was made available for us to copy by Kath Baigent, a long term Berowra resident who is now living in Queensland.

You can see a very young Kath in her 1929 Berowra Public School photo in an earlier blog. Click here to visit the image and story.

The significance of Berowra Station in the growth of Berowra and areas beyond can be traced by going to our Museum exhibitions: TourismVisiting and The Mother, The Father and The Matriarch clicking into The Father- George Collingridge.

Why not take a leisurely trip to Berowra Station of bygone days by browsing through blogs on such well loved friends as The Squirt! Click here to have a look.

Have you, like Kath, got photos or stories of Berowra Station we could all share?
