Scope and content

Reverse has text: "151. Menheniot Viaduct, Cornwall. / The Cornish Railway is carried at a high level, and the numerous valleys it has to cross are spanned with Viaducts of the most light and seemingly fragile construction. The Viaduct at Menheniot is one of the loftiest, and is the most ornamental on the line. It is a beautiful piece of woodwork, and a most picturesque object in connection with the richly wooded valley it spans." Label: "Sold by Edward Lavin, Mineral Museum, Chapel Street, Penzance".
