Narrowing the range, I can't see the War Memorial which was erected in 1922.

Both undated, although some time apart, judging by the undergrowth above the tunnel.

Undated "Postcard photograph of man stood in a thick coat uniform and hat" from Shropshire Museums.
Found while searching for Bridgnorth photos, although it doesn't actually say it's from Bridgnorth. Nice photo of a GWR uniform anyway.

Undated detail shots of the original bridge. Both mention that it was built by Rubery Owen, so possibly publicity photos.

Undated. No bus garage, so pre-1904.

Hand bill - Call for Public Meeting. re proposed railway. 28.12.1846.
Poor quality. I'll see if I can get hold of a higher resolution copy.
