EDITORS COMMENTS
This coloured lithograph depicts the Stockport Viaduct in the mid-19th century, circa 1850. The image was published by Bradshaw and Blacklock, two renowned publishers of their time, who were known for producing the original Bradshaw's railway guides. The intricately detailed print showcases the impressive engineering feat that was the Stockport Viaduct, which was a vital component of the growing railway network during the Industrial Revolution. The Stockport Viaduct, located in Stockport, Cheshire, England, was built between 1836 and 1840 under the direction of Thomas Bouch. This architectural masterpiece spans the River Mersey and the town of Stockport, measuring 2,127 feet in length and featuring 27 arches. The viaduct was a significant milestone in railway history, as it was the first major structure to be built entirely of wrought iron and the longest viaduct in the world at the time of its completion. The lithograph beautifully captures the essence of the era, with the vibrant colours and intricate details bringing the scene to life. The trains, carriages, and passengers can be seen making their way across the viaduct, while the bustling town of Stockport lies below. The print also highlights the picturesque landscape surrounding the viaduct, with the lush greenery and winding river adding to the overall charm of the image. This coloured lithograph is an invaluable historical record of the Stockport Viaduct during its early days, providing a fascinating glimpse into the past and the role it played in the development of the railway system in England.
