L1366. Brick arch underbridge near Northgates, Leicester, circa 1897. The photograph is a fine illustration of how the new Railway had to find a way through, and often over, an old and established city. This section of the London Extension (Contract No.2 Leake to Aylestone) was built by Henry Lovatt of Wolverhampton.
