A GWR publicity view of Penzance Viaduct in Cornwall, taken in 1923. Wooden viaducts across rivers became a common feature of the railway in Cornwall as they were a cheaper alternative to longer lasting stone constructions. By the 1930s most of these viaducts had been replaced

Australian officers and sailors on a visit to Swindon Works,1945 Featured Places Image

Australian officers and sailors on a visit to Swindon Works,1945

Officers and sailors from H.M.A.S Australia on a visit to Swindon Works on July 13th 1945 whilst their ship was docked at Plymouth awaiting repairs. Their ship was heavily involved in the war effort throughout South East Asia until she was forced to withdraw for repairs in early 1945. She arrived at Plymouth on July 2nd 1945 for a major refit and remained there until December of that year. With up to 6 months in port while their ship was undergoing repair the group of Australian soldiers, pictured here continuing their tour around Swindon Works, presumably had plenty of time to tour sites of interest around Britain. The impressive building in the background of this image is the Pattern Store which housed the GWR's thousands of component patterns
