This is the front page of The Iron Road - The Liverpool and Manchester Railway 1830-1980, a newspaper issued in 1980 to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the opening of the Liverpool and Manchester Railway. At the top of the page, the heads of George and Robert Stephenson can be seen. In the foreground, the Jupiter can be seen with a driver on its footplate, while in the background an unidentifiable locomotive travels over the Sankey Viaduct
