Widnes Central station was advertised on the bridge that carried the line over Victoria Road. Victoria Road was the commercial heart of Widnes in the late-Nineteenth Century. In this view looking south taken in 1897 railway staff are in the process of decorating the bridge for Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee. Widnes Central station was to the right of this view. In the distance the LNWR railway bridge can be seen. Adjacent to that bridge (to the left) was that company's Widnes station.
