When the Bourne to Saxby railway was built in Lincolnshire between 1890 and 1893, the supervising engineer, Charles Wilson, took a series of photographs recording the construction of cuttings and bridges, and generally detailing the progress of works along the line. Offering a rare insight into the building of a Victorian railway, this volume presents a selection of these images with extensive explanatory captions, comparative modern photographs of the featured locations and a brief history of the line.
