Description 
A black and white photograph showing the Spring Creek railway station. The building design is almost the same as the Picton railway station (see catalogue record 2009.067.0019). The advertising beside the left hand window says, "New Zealand. HB. Clothing Factory". The advertisement below HB says in part, "Marlborough, ....ene Gas, ... Syndicate, .... the order of, .... day. J.D. Iremonger, Blenheim. A scan of this photograph is to be used in the Changing European History Gallery 2 display in commemoration of the Marlborough Provincial 150th anniversary on 1 November 2009. ............................................................................................................................................................................... Caption 18 Spring Creek's original station. The picket-style fretwork behind the name plate, the rounded ticket windows, and the contrasting paint colours, embellish this otherwise simple building. Inside, the Station Master had his office. There is a waiting lobby, necessary in the absence of a platform veranda. Mothers, and children, wear their Sunday best, so it looks like another shopping sortie to Blenheim. The top sign refers to the H B Clothing Factory. The firm first opened their Blenheim business in 1890. 2009.067.0018
