The former Leicester Central Station Parcels Offices in July 2002.

L3048. Still standing proud on 19th July 2002 were the former Parcels Offices at Leicester Central Station. Since the station's closure in 1969, the buildings and offices have been used as industrial premises. The station platforms would have been to the left of the photograph, while the main entrance was to the right. Note the sandstone and terracotta finials and ornamentation on the building's gable ends.
