Does anyone have any old pictures of the Shrivenham Road End and the Stratton Bank before seats were in it?

Thanks.

Remember it well.....the advertising board above what was known as THe Enclosure...used to advertise Serjeants Tools, who had an emporium on Faringdon Road.    Memory is a bit vague on this but it was on a corner, probably opposite the Mail Coach....same side .....not sure what the horny handed artisans of railway's Swindonia would make of the current clientele, of  what used to be The Locomotive.

I think your right about the ticket prices, the stand is slowly becoming all red!
