The Alternate Route
“It’s almost like history took an alternate route somewhere in the early 20th century… As I walk into the Maradana Railway Station nearly forty years later, not much has changed. Dark iron arches into the tin roof over the platforms, and the wooden stairs sag with the weight of a century, a million footfalls, and tens of thousands of rush hours.”
