The McAlpine family have long been associated with railway construction projects and architectural details removed by their firm during rebuildings have been preserved at Sir William McAlpine's Fawley estate near Henley-on-Thames. It is believed this LCDR badge, similar to the one above, was removed during the 1970s rebuilding of Blackfriars station.
