A pair of lithographs by J Jobbins (top) and G Earp Junior (bottom) showing a viaduct on the London & Brighton Railway. The lower picture was published by W H Mason, Repository of Arts, 81 King's Road, Brighton to commemorate the full opening of the railway on 21st September 1841. The London & Brighton Railway was founded in the 1830s to provide a direct route from London to the increasingly popular resort of Brighton, Susex. The engineer George Rennie (1791-1866) proposed a route which incorporated this viaduct acros the Ouse Valley near Ardingly. Completed in March 1841, it is constructed of 37 arches.
