    The bowler is Brian's grandfather Samuel Worthington who is believed to have worked as a plumber at Monton Green station in 1890. He lived in Eccles but John does not think that the location is either of these. Can anyone do better?

    Agreed, it isn't Eccles, nor Monton Green. I cannot recognise it among the stations in this locality that I used to know fairly well, but Platt Bridge, near Wigan on the line from Eccles, had a wooden building on the north platform with a similar window/door layout. Still looking...

    It seems this is not LNWR as the staff are Lancashire & Yorkshire. Location still unresolved.
