Description

Hand-coloured aquatint engraving by S G Hughes after a painting by Thomas Talbot Bury, showing railway warehouses at Wapping, Liverpool, on the Liverpool & Manchester Railway (LMR). The line between Liverpool and Manchester was 31 miles (50 km) long and was built under the supervision of the Liverpool & Manchester Railway's chief engineer George Stephenson (1781-1848). Opened on 15 September 1830, it was the world's first intercity railway. Bury was responsible for the best-known views of the LMR, which were published as a series of hand-coloured aquatints by Ackermann of London in the early 1830s.
