About this image
Looking north-west across the Midland Railway's Erewash Valley main line and showing lace (left) and hosiery (right) factories. These fronted onto Middleton Street. A MR open wagon can be seen on the left, while the pointwork and bufferstop in the right foreground is associated with the Babbington mineral branch, which joined the main line at Babbington Junction, a little to the south of Ilkeston Junction proper.
