This is an artist’s impression of the opening day of the Liverpool and Manchester Railway. The Moorish Arch features prominently here, with large crowds of people waving flags and bowler hats. Below, five locomotives can be seen: the one on the left of the picture appears to be the Northumbrian, the one in the centre the Rocket, while the other three cannot be identified
