L2304. This is the Upperton Road bridge, a structure built by the Great Central Railway which crossed the London Extension and its sidings at Leicester Goods Yard. The main line itself passed beneath the double girder span visible to the left of the central iron section. Under construction in the foreground is the wagon repair shop, one of the few Great Central buildings that still stands today.
