1993: Cutting ZA91 and ZB91

Posted by Picasa
Lara Unger's beautiful photo from 1993 shows Cuttings ZA91 and ZB91 (if I've read the site plans properly) at the beginning of the excavation. It sometimes happened, as here, that a cutting opened in the previous year was unfinished. A sheet of plastic would be laid over the surface and the spoil backfilled and the turf replaced. The following season would begin with the heavy labouring job of digging out the dirt off the plastic sheet which can be seen emerging from underneath. This view to the west could almost be a watercolour.
