About this image
This shows the near completed bridge construction, at the time of the building of the bridge over the L M S Railway (London, Midland and Scottish Railway) line and the River Leen, near Radford Road, New Basford. The brick structure in the middle of the river is one of the road bridge supports (see NTGM004736). Looking west at the gasometers and offices of the Basford Gas Works (at this time the works' gasometers were dotted on Radford Road, Church Street and Vernon Road; the new road cut through the Gas Works yard).
