L3432. This tunnel, thought to take the Neasden to Northolt Line under the District Railway in South Harrow, is the same as that pictured in record L3428. In this image a contractors' line is still in place, and the right cutting wall has yet to be trimmed down to size. A small group of navvies work at levelling the base of the cutting.
