L1702. In order to traverse the southern portion of the city of Nottingham, the London Extension, like at Leicester, had to be carried on a series of purpose built viaduct and bridges. Here we can see one of Nottingham's numerous girder bridges - this one crossing Arkwright Street close to the Midland Railway's station. Arkwright Street would eventually boast a station of its own, which would in turn become the northern terminus of the line after it was truncated in 1966. Of interest in the picture are the horse-drawn tram lines set into the road surface, and the 'Whitworths Cigarettes' advert outside the shop on the right. This rain soaked image was taken sometime around 1897.
