Lincoln, Holmes Road, Lifting Bridge
At the western end of the Brayford where the Fossdyke begins this lifting bridge gave access from Carholme Road via Holmes Road to the Holmes Yard railway goods depot.
The roof of the depot is seen at the top left of the picture; immediately below is the bridge operator's cabin.
This bridge frequently caused traffic delays in the Brayford area.
It is now the location of the high level road bridge completed a few years ago.
The University of Lincoln occupies the site of the goods depot.
