TQ3382 : Shoreditch: remains of old viaduct

Shoreditch: remains of old viaduct
Shoreditch: remains of old viaduct
This old viaduct led to the now closed and demolished terminus of London Broad Street, which once handled more passenger trains per day than Euston and Paddington put together. Some idiot has placed a pair of tube-train bodies on the top of the viaduct, which is totally misleading as tube trains never ran here (although it is rumoured that one was once driven here during an ASLEF strike in the late 1950s).

The photograph was taken from King John Court. The road at the bottom is Holywell Lane, where a Post Office van is clearly disobeying the law, as Holywell Lane is a one-way street from west to east.
