Station 1953-10-10 Holborn Viaduct-ROneg-1902-BWB-378
View northward, from the platform of Ludgate Hill Station (closed March 1929); ex-South Eastern & Chatham and Metropolitan (Widened Lines). The tracks on the right lead to Holborn Viaduct (SR) terminus, visible in middle distance. Those on the left are the Metropolitan Widened Lines, plunging down into Snow Hill Tunnel, through Holborn Viaduct Low Level Station (closed June 1916, when through passenger services ceased) to Farringdon and King's Cross etc. (Intensive freight traffic continued through the tunnel and over Blackfriars Bridge until March 1969). It can be seen that in 1953 the rebuilding of the war-damaged City of London has only just begun.
