Olive Mount Cutting, Liverpool, by Chris Hogg, 1996. This cutting, leading up to Liverpool Lime Street station was on the Liverpool & Manchester Railway, and was built in the late 1820s. Liverpool as a whole dealt with a high volume of traffic during the mid to late 19th century, due to the large amount of freight being brought to the docks to be shipped abroad. The docks deal with less freight today, but Lime Street station is still heavily used by passengers.
