Farringdon Street to Herne Hill

Metropolitan Extension

On leaving Farringdon Street the line is carried across Ludgate Hill by means of a highly ornamented viaduct, and from thence over the Alexandra Bridge, a truly magnificent specimen of engineering skill, to Blackfriars. The Charing Cross railway attracts our attention for a moment, when, on passing the station at Borough Road, we arrive at the well-known station of the

Elephant and Castle, from whence omnibuses may be had to almost every part of the metropolis.

Wallworth Road, Camberwell Road, and Loughborough Road stations.

Brixton. – The line used for the Crystal Palace traffic takes rather a circuitous course eastward from this station.

On leaving Loughborough Road on our route from the city, we next come to Herne Hill.
