This picture is of the railway bridge over the Hamble, looking up stream from the road bridge which carried the A27 over the river. A little way to the right of where this picture was taken was the Red Lion Inn.
I remember watching steam trains crossing the bridge on trains from Brighton/Portsmouth to Salisbury/Bristol in the early 1960's. Local trains were Diesel units - the line not being electrified until much later.
Now there is a third bridge - beyond the railway bridge - which carries the M27 over the river!
