The Railway Bridge 1898: The original caption reads Built to replace the old brick tunnel which was taken down in 1898. The three-horse omnibus to Mount Pleasant Road is seen in the picture The St. Andrews Archway, described by some as a hideous hole stood at the bottom of Queens Road, until it was replaced in 1898 with the present lofty viaduct carrying the railway over the road. The original archway or tunnel was built of bricks made from clay taken from the brick-fields on the site of the present Alexandra Park and some of the ponds in the park were originally clay pits  in those days bricks were usually made from local brick-earth in temporary kilns as close to point of use as possible.
