The Great Howard Street bridge which carried its namesake over the Waterloo branch of the LNWR is seen looking north on 19 November 2016. The Waterloo Goods station warehouse was located to the left. To the right is the 'Grand Arch' designed by John Hawkshaw that carried the LYR lines over the LNWR branch and into the Great Howard Street Goods station.

Looking north from under the Great Howard Street bridge on 19 November 2016. The bridge had been widened in the later part of the Nineteenth Century on its eastern side. In this view the original arched bridge structure is seen to the left and the addition is to the right.

When the goods station was extended northwards some time before 1890 a short tunnel was constructed under Great Howard Street to give access to it. The entrance to the tunnel is seen in this view from 19 November 2016.

A view looking south from under the Great Howard Street bridge on 19 November 2016. The photograph clearly illustrates the differing styles of the original structure and the later addition that allowed the street to be widened.
