Description

Construction of the arches of St Pancras station's cellars, London, by J B Pyne, about 1867. St Pancras station was built so that the floor was slightly higher than ground level, so that trains could keep to low gradients and so that the track crossed the Regent's canal at a reasonable height. Therefore the station had a large number of cellars which were used to store beer barrels that had come from Burton on Trent!
