The bridge near St Peter's Avenue being demolished
Evening Telegraph c1995
Though many in Rushden are mourning the possible loss of the local railway station museum, there must be few who miss this old railway bridge. It was so low that one private bus company had to let the tyres down on its double deckers for them to squeeze under.
This picture of the High Street (north) in the snow was taken by Colin Bryant of Victoria Road, Rushden. In the background is the old Royal Variety Theatre.
A wide angle view of the Bridge, Queen Victoria Hotel, Railway Station and Ellis & Everard's yard (top right).
It was taken by Arthur George and he had marked where he would trim it for a postcard.
Demolition of the old railway bridge - came by email. The footbridge over the railway line was still standing.
Up - up - and away!
