View of Wick Lane
Description
View of Wick Lane, Bow, looking south towards Old Ford Road from the Grand Union Canal and Wick Lane Bridge. The iron railway bridge (once used by the North London Railway) and Wick Terrace are visible beyond the bridge. One of the buildings on Wick Terrace has a canvas awning. A zebra crossing can be seen in the distance. Beyond Wick Terrace is the turning into Monier Road. The roofs of Victorian terraced houses in Monier Road are beyond the railway. A shop, likely 1 Lamprell Street, advertises 'Old Holborn' tobacco. Also in view are a telephone wires pole, a street lamp post, and road signs including a 'low bridge' and school warning signs. Pedestrians include two children. Lorries are in view in the distance. The railway bridge was eventually removed along with the railway line. The A12 flyover would eventually pass across the road not far from the spot where the railway bridge was situated. The buildings were also later demolished. Much of the area was altered by the widening and re-building of roads and the construction of industrial buildings and housing in the 1970s. The Buildings in Wick Terrace were also later demolished and became the site of a flyover.
