Girder bridge and signal box near Jewry Wall excavations, Leicester

L3115. This postcard was produced by Leicester's Museum and Libraries Commission. It shows the Jewry Wall excavations of 1936-38, and more specifically the outer portico on the north side and the Roman road. However, framed in the background is the Great Central viaduct which brought the London Extension across much of the city. Crossing the girder bridge over Welles Street is a southbound train hauled by the Atlantic 4-4-2 No. 5264, a locomotive designed by John G. Robinson.
