Sweeping Arches

When it was built in 1869, the Holbeck Viaduct was lauded as one of the engineering marvels of the Victorian age. The structure is largely composed of black 'engineering bricks', a construction material said to be favoured by its architects, the London & North Western railway company. This image depicts the viaduct close to its western end, where it runs parallel with Domestic Road on its way into the city centre.
