The rail bridge was constructed late in the 19th century and connected Sharpness with Lydney over the River Severn.
Can I say "in the late 19th century" instead?
The examples analyzed here are the British deflation in the late 19th century and Japan in the 1920s - 1930s.

Below decks, only children could stand upright; the William, which sailed from Newry to Boston in 1766, had a height of four feet nine inches between the decks and was described as 'roomy'. Berths were crowded, and until late in the late 18th Century, there were no portholes so the only source of fresh air was a few overhead hatches.
Shouldn't until late in the late 18th Century be either "until late in the 18th century" or "until the late 18th century"?
