I think this 1920s image must have been taken close from Dagmar Road as the rail flyover for the Hertford Loop is out of frame. Centre extreme left in the background, the Palace Gates engine shed can be seen (located then at the bottom of Imperial Road) and, moving right on the same plane, is the splendid but rather grandiose foot bridge over the platforms of Palace Gates station.

The edifice in the centre further right is described a crushing mill (for coal probably) on OS maps and later became a Charringtons coal distribution centre in the 1950’s. The carriage sidings shown are now covered by the High Speed Train depot and the road bridge carrying Buckingham Road over the line is centre right. The engine shown is an Atlantic class C1 4-4-2 passenger locomotive originally built by Henry Ivatt for the Great Northern Railway in 1904. ©Rail-Online
