The internet has certainly changed the way we can find and access information and is a constant and ever changing source for researchers in many fields – including historical societies.

Pauline Tyrrell [E.2.4a.10b.1c.2d=] found this interesting “update” about the Hungerford Market and its eventual demise to become Charing Cross Station. Network Rail (UK) has started to post items from its archives on its website and the above link has some interesting pictures and information, as does this link about the building of the Station and the Hungerford Bridge.
