This photo is taken from the old Court House Railway Station at the bottom of Regent Street, the only railway station in this country to have that name. There was a stone viaduct following this plate girder bridge, entrance to the goods just where the man is walking. There was a newsagent under one of the arches and I always got a comic bought when visiting my grandma in Barnsley. One day a steam locomotive was passing over the viaduct and pieces of grit entered my eye, I made a right commotion and wouldn't let my dad get it out, until a miner was walking past and offered help, he was like a giant to me! However, with a matchstick, he rolled my eyelid up and removed the grit, I was as quiet as a mouse. You can just see Barnsley Exchange Railway station on the left, now the only railway station in Barnsley.
