Undated. Between the building of the footbridge in 1895 and the bus garage in 1904.

Undated. No footbridge, so pre 1887

Undated, but information here suggests the engravers named on the bottom right corner had moved to a new address by 1876.

Undated, although the signal box and bus garage place it as 1904 - 1923.

"Bridgnorth railway workers" Undated.

Undated. I suspect this may be preservation era from before the green carriages blocked the view. Is that an LMS carriage?

Undated, although black out modifications date it as 1939 to '45.

This is strange. It looks exactly the same as another photo on Page 1, except that it has been colourised and there's now a second person standing by the bridge.

Another colourised version of a picture I have already posted.
The Facebook caption dates it as c.1879, although, as mentioned above, Newman & Co were at a different address by 1876.
Edit; Someone else on Facebook has an 1873 edition of the book this was taken from.

Undated, but again, between the building of the footbridge in 1895 and the bus garage in 1904. (I'm assuming the bus garage was built in the same year that the bus service to Wolverhampton started.)
That looks like the remains of the water tower seen in the pre-1887 photo above at the bottom of Pan Pudding Hill.
Some background information on Boulton & Co

Assuming the artist colourised the photo from life, that could be a rare illustration of GWR red goods wagons. There's some history of GWR wagon liveries here.
