The old goods shed, Avondale Railway Station

Could be 1920s, maybe, could be later. I'm gathering info on the old station all the time, putting pieces into place still. That old shed is a bit of a landmark around here, but it was looking sad before the firewood business leased the railway land here, and now, there's bits coming off it and long grass growing in the roof. It'll be gone, soon.

The sign, still up there after all this time, from the period when Avondale was a busy goods station (in the 19th century, that was its raison d'etre, more than anything else):
8AM-12NOON 12.30PM-4PM

Update: the shed was demolished 26 October 2008, over Labour Weekend. An updated post here.
