Lasswade Viaduct

Thank you to Donald Grant, Penicuik, Midlothian, Scotland for taking the photograph above.

The photo was taken in an attempt to discover whether or not a viaduct in the background of this early photo by James Pike might be Lasswade viaduct.

Conclusion

The viaduct in the Pike photo is not Lasswade.  As Donald says:

"The terrain around Lasswade viaduct is a fairly steep-sided valley.   In Pike's print, there is nothing behind the viaduct above the parapet, which really rules out Lasswade."
