District Railway construction. View of the site of West Brompton Underground station, with platform buildings of the already open West London Railway station visible on the right. On the left, work has begun on the Underground station platform. A train of contractor's wagons, filled with spoil, stands on temporary track, midground centre; more wagons occupy the tracks on either side. A points lever is prominent in the centre foreground. The area appears to have a light covering of snow.
