The image shows the former Platform 14 on the 'Suburban' side of King's Cross station, on a line known as the 'Hotel Curve' running from Farringdon to join the Great Northern main lines at King's Cross. This part of the station was completely redeveloped from the 1970s onwards and no trace of this location remains.
