Waterloo Train Station – A Look Back In Time
This afternoon the Waterloo Community Arts Centre in the Button Factory on Regina St. Waterloo hosted Once Around The Block – Uptown Waterloo. Our tour guides consisted of 3 members of the Baden Storytellers’ Guild.
The first stop was just across the street from the Button Factory. Story teller and artist Michele Braniff took us back in time to when the original building of the 1880’s was an integral part of Waterloo’s social life. During both World Wars troops from this area departed from this station. The present building was built in 1910 and was closed to passengers in 1934.
Today the station is a men’s clothing store.
In keeping with going back in time I treated this photograph with a vintage look to combine the modern surroundings with the vintage look of the building – inspired by Michele’s dynamic stories of days gone by at the Waterloo Train Station.
