Toulon is now my home town, so I have become interested in its history. As far as the station goes, surprisingly little has changed since this picture. Yes, steam has gone, along with the station’s overall roof. But the buildings on the left remain, while the station itself has just been renovated, removing architectural horrors that were added in the 1980s, with the result that the frontage looks more like the original than it has done for years! The glorious blue sky is still typical.
