    This looks very like Wylde Green station, on the Birmingham to Sutton Coldfield branch, looking north. I'd put the date to within a few years of 1900.

    I sent a copy to a friend of mine in the Sutton Coldfield Railway Society who is very well up on railways in and around Birmingham, asking him to confirm the location. His reply: "Definitely Wylde Green and before WWI. There were two waiting rooms on the Up platform and you can just see the second one in the distance. Seems a large staff for quite a small station without a goods yard."

    The comment on "large staff" I think is just modern thinking. All stations had staff in those days just as all railways had plenty of carriages for all fluctuations in traffic.
