Below 3 photos I took of the old station in 1973, just before the station was demolished. I remember my father and brother bought floor studs from the wrecker (Anne de Jager?). Dad made a tabletop from them and my brother some chairs. The beams were American Pine, and my father always regretted not buying more of them. The additional photos that also show a train are from a book about 130 years of station building / architecture. The photographer was Zwolle based J.G.C. van de Meene, and the date 3 April 1958. I also have a slide of the station that I will send through as soon as I can get it into digital format. For those interested I still have the negatives of the pictures I took (6x6).
