Preston Road, & Station from the air

A 1920 aerial shot from the new online collection- Britain from Above.

Points of interest (apart from the massive railway works): the row of large Victorian villas along the Preston Road, now all gone with one exception at Lovers Walk; the chimney beyond the station, presumably the North Road Power Station; and over to the right the spire of Clifton Road Congregational Church, now also gone.

  1. The view also shows the south end of Preston Park before the Captain Maclaren makeover and the planting of the rose garden.
