L1469. Construction of 'bridge over River Soar, Stanford-on-Soar', Nottinghamshire (S. W. A. Newton's notes). Beyond the Stanford Road girder bridge is the North end of the viaduct, which also crossed the river. The young navvy in the photograph must have worked for Henry Lovatt of Wolverhampton, the contractor responsible for building this section of the London Extension (Contract No. 2, Leake to Aylestone).
