This Edwardian postcard shows the aftermath of a destructive fire that engulfed the down side station building at Chirk. The damaged structure was rebuilt by the GWR in a similar architectural style, the replacement building being of more or less the same appearance as its ill-fated predecessor. The female clothes that can be seen in the picture suggest a date of circa-1910/12, but I have not yet found an exact date. The historic newspapers that are available on-line are all Victorian (apart from the Times) - or are there any on-line resources that I am unaware of? Alternatively, do any Denbighshire local historians happen to know anything about the incident?
