St.Pancras Station London now

Researching Emil Verpilleux' St.Pancras print I found this amazing photograph of St. Pancras Station after it's recent 1000.000.000 € restoration project and with consent from the editor couldn't resist sharing before continuing with Verpilleux' other prints. 
And this impression after it's completion in 1868. The largest cast iron span structure in the world.
1865, the fundamental cast iron structures below standing in St.Pancras cemetery that had to be replaced.
And just in service 1870
In 1937 painted by William Menzies Coldstream (1908-1987)
