Building the girder bridge over the Midland Station, Nottingham

Building the girder bridge over the Midland Station, Nottingham

L1705. Constructing the bowstring girder bridge that carried the London Extension over the Midland Railway's Station at Nottingham, circa 1897. The image captures an era of fierce railway competition, and the boundless Victorian faith in railway expansion, facts that would eventually result in the closure of the Last Main Line, and the demolition of this and many other traces of this optimistic enterprise. Logan & Hemingway was the contractor who built this section of the line (Contract No.1, Annesley to Leake).
