NOTES: Isambard Kingdom Brunel, engineer of the Great Western Railway, designed this London terminus for the railway company with the assistance of the architect, Sir Matthew Digby Wyatt. As first bulit the canopy was ridge-and-furrow glazing designed by Joseph Paxton. This had been replaced by the 1930s, again following World War 2 after suffering extensive bomb damage and finally removed as part of the Crossrail project in 2013.
