Sedgwick's brewery. In 1923 this concern was taken over by the nearby Benskin's brewery.

I suspect that the tube stock would be the specially commissioned joint stock which, as the name suggests, was jointly owned by the Underground group and the LNWR. It was delivered in 1920, but had a short service life because of reliability issues and was replaced in 1930 with standard stock.

This impressive viaduct was built over the river Colne and The Dell (later Oxhey Park) in 1912, to carry the L&NWR Bushey Curve electric railway from Bushey Station and the Arches.

A superb shot of the L.M.S. 'Croxley' Car Sheds at West Watford. Just visible on one of the left hand tracks in the shed is the unmistakeable outline of an 'Oerlikan' Set with an early Underground 'Tube' set on a right hand track. Visible bottom left is the branch to West Watford and Croxley (L.M.S.) whilst at bottom right is the branch to Rickmansworth - Church Street. Immediately to the left of the sheds, the line curves away to go to Watford Junction via Watford High Street. The southern two tracks of the triangle are clearly shown being used for the storage of redundant wagons. Just above the triangle are the Western Bushey arches curving away to the right to join the E.C.M.L. at Bushey. Note also in the middle distance, a passenger train on the E.C.M.L. heading for Watford Junction.

Some fascinating detail here, although I'm puzzled by your regular reference to the ECML on this and other images in the Watford/Bushey series. Contemporary maps in my collection indicate this as being a London & North Western Railway main line until January 1st 1923, after which it is a London Midland & Scottish Railway until nationalisation in 1948.
