Three colour images from the 1970's?



Having failed to find many ground level photos of this obscure branch here are a few images of the two railway bridges which could still be seen in 2012:

The above photos have been assembled from various sources, including those freely found on the internet. My thanks go to the many photographers alive and dead who have contributed to this collection and in so doing, are keeping the memory of these lost canals alive. These images are reproduced for ease of research are are not necessarily the property of this blog, and as such should not be used for commercial gain without the explicit permission of the owner (whoever that may be).
