The subway under Crystal Palace Parade in January 1981 The subway can be viewed from the west side of Crystal Palace Parade where an original bricked up entrance into the station is clearly visible in the low wall. Behind the wall steps lead down to a small concourse on the west side of the subway, from here passengers could walk directly into one of the two booking halls at either end of the station. The four arches of the subway are grilled but easily viewed from this side of the road.

This is almost all that remains of the once busy station bringing passengers to Chrystal Palace for the famous Great Exhibition. This is the pedestrian subway into the Palace from the station.

Bromley Common Sanatorium in 1913. Most of the patients would have had tuberculosis. There was no cure. The only treatment was fresh air, good diet and light labour. Half those entering sanatoria were dead within five years. The sanatoria for the poor resembled prisons. This was obviously for the more affluent. Remember, there was no National Health Service.
