taken 57 years ago, near to Woolwich Ferry, Greenwich, Great Britain

Former rail link to Woolwich Dockyard
Former rail link to Woolwich Dockyard
A photograph from a train on the down line looking at the former railway link via a tunnel under Woolwich Church Street into the Royal Dockyard, taken in 1962 after the line had become disused. The tunnel was eventually converted into a pedestrian underpass when the dockyard redevelopment was started. See TQ4279 : Subway under Woolwich Church Street in the adjacent northern square.
The thin object on the skyline over the tunnel entrance is a large brick chimney at the far end of the dockyard.

Scanned from a 2.25 inch square black and white negative. Slight blurring due to the train movement. Picture cropped to remove large sky area.
