Workmen replacing a tiled house roof, a first floor washing line across a flat roof, and a tiled lychgate roof all here in Leytonstone, East London. A lychgate is a traditional covered churchyard gateway entrance that allowed the coffin to be kept dry while waiting for the burial.

The last two images are of the original iron and glass roof over the Northbound platforms of Kings Cross train station, and the similar huge single span roof over St Pancras International train station in central London, both beautiful pieces of Victorian engineering.
