Another elevated view of Nottingham London Road High Level station looking east in June 1967. London Road is seen in the foreground and, beyond that, the Nottingham Canal. The Poplar branch of the canal is seen on the left running between the High Level line and Boots the Chemist's factory. In the distance the Great Northern corn warehouse is seen top right and, in front of it, the LNWR's goods warehouse.
