London Street Bridge

Happy Friday again… This week’s old photo is again part of a recent acquisition of railroad infrastructure photos.

There is no date on this one, but there a a few photos in the series with similar id numbers, and those date to January, 1921. At the time of this photo the bridge was considerably smaller than today.

We visited the underside of the bridge in the Summer of 2009. As you can see it is much wider today that it was when the photo was taken. Any railfans out there have any background on when it was expanded?[Edit – Thanks Bernie for the correction, I was one bridge to the east!]

Have a safe weekend everyone, see you back here Monday.
