Construction work on the Metropolitan Railway at Leinster Gardens, Bayswater. It can be seen that the line runs in a deep cutting at this point, with brick retaining walls. A number of men are at work in the cutting, where two wagons filled with spoil stand on a single line of track. The gap in the houses is now filled by the famous 'dummy' buildings, which are mere facades. The trees in the background are in Craven Hill Gardens.
