L1369. Leicester Central Station under construction, circa 1897. The photograph provides a fine illustration of Victorian iron work and building methods. With the permanent way laid and the ballast packed, the track had been completed prior to building the station. Henry Lovatt of Wolverhampton was the contractor responsible for building this part of the London Extension (Contract No.2, Leake to Aylestone).
