Sydenham Hill Woods Continued

Following the recent post about Sydenham Hill Woods, Michael has sent in this old photo of the bridge there. Not sure when this was taken, but clearly it was before the railway closed and was overgrown by woodland. The Crystal Palace to Nunhead Line apparently closed in 1954 - more details at Abandoned Stations including a map of the route, which included a stretch by the side of the Horniman gardens.

When was the photo taken? Each track only consists of two rails instead of two running and an electrical supply (third) rail. The line was electrified in July 1925 by Southern Railways.
