Description: The rebuilding of the London & North Western Railway between Lime Street station and Edge Hill, Liverpool, 1881. Work began in the 1870s to expand Liverpool Lime Street and quadruple the number of tracks entering the station. Traffic entering the station had heavily increased since the station was built in the 1820s. Liverpool as a whole dealt with a high volume of traffic due to the large amount of freight being brought to the docks to be shipped abroad.
