Crewe in Cheshire has always been know as a railway town. It was built on a greenfield site in the 1840s specifically to serve the burgeoning railway industry. Located at a major junction, it developed a range of construction, maintenance and administrative services and the town continued to grow as the railway network expanded. This photograph taken in the 1890s shows the locomotive construction factory of the London and North Western Railway (LNWR).
