I've been sharing photos from various local history Facebook pages on the unofficial SVR Facebook page for a while, generally one at a time as they turn up, so I thought it was time to collect them all together in one list.
I'll start with Stourport, as that is by far the most common subject.
This a public group, so all links should be viewable by anyone. I'm sure someone will let me know if they are not.

Stourport station. Austin A40 makes it post 1958.

Kidderminster Past is a closed group. You will need to join to be able to see these.

Several photos of Hoobrook, including the original timber viaduct. (Yes, I know it's not the SVR, but it's a local railway landmark)

Trams (Again, not the SVR, but they're on rails and in Kidderminster)

A view of Iron Bridge & Broseley a little prior or during demolition. Note the footbridge already gone and the missing chimney stack.

A earlier view in slightly happier times.
