48 Dean Street again.
Somewhere near Blackfriars, possibly. This and the following still, rud034, no longer exist. The street is Limeburner Lane connecting Old Bailey and Ludgate Hill. The railway arches are the old pre-Thameslink tracks just north of the bridge which used to cross Ludgate Hill. The church spire just visible is St Bride's, Fleet Street. The area has changed beyond recognition. The railway now runs underground and new office blocks on both sides of the street make a convincing now shot impossible. Andrew Fisher
Peter took this shot from Limeburner Lane with St Bride's towers visible top centre.
Limeburner Lane near Blackfriars.
These are all new buildings advises Peter, but with the architecture mimicking the old bridge.
