TQ3780 : Viaducts, old and new

taken 27 years ago, near to Poplar, Tower Hamlets, Great Britain

Viaducts, old and new
Viaducts, old and new
This is an interesting photograph, for it shows (centre left) some of the arches of the very old London & Blackwall Railway which were made use of when the DLR was constructed. As we get nearer to the camera, the trackbed has been raised to a point (just below the car) where the old viaduct had to be demolished and a new one constructed on modern pillars. Note that this view is no longer available owing to the erection of new buildings.
