Description

Coloured engraving (proof copy), drawn and engraved by Isaac Shaw, from a series entitled 'Views of the Most Interesting Scenery on the Line of the Liverpool and Manchester Railway'. A steam locomotive is shown hauling wagons beneath the bridge. The crosing of the Chat Mos peat bog provided a huge challenge for engineers working on George Stephenson's (1781-1848) Liverpool and Manchester Railway, and resulted in the construction of a 'floating' embankment. Published by Shaw, Post Office Place, Liverpool.
