'The text has been revised and updated to include the recent refurbishment of the 1913-14 roof span at Paddington ... There is also an account of the virtual last-minute discovery of a cast iron canal bridge designed by Brunel in Bishops Bridge Road, hitherto concealed by brickwork until it was about to be demolished ... The numerous illustrations, a number of which are new, are excellently reproduced. Most of them have considerable historic value, which together with original drawings and plans, many in colour, combine to form an attractive book.' -- Gordon Biddle Railway & Canal Historical Society Journal
