Bridge Fair c1904

Crowds crossing the Town Bridge on their way to the opening of the Bridge Fair. The tradition of the Peterborough Bridge Fair dates back to the reign of King Henry VI and continues today.

This image was captured from the railway crossing that used to take the line from Peterborough East station across the main access road to the city from the east …… the Town Bridge in these days simply bridged the river rather than today’s bridge which takes out the railway line too.
