The Forth Bridge

under construction

The View

Here are four views, presumably taken from photographs in the Valentine archive, showing stages of construction of the Forth Rail Bridge in the 1880s.  The bridge was officially opened in 1890.

The Postcard

This postcard was not published until many decades after the Forth Rail Bridge was constructed.  The card has not been sent through the post but was probably published in the 1950s.

"These are most awful black looking things,
but I suppose your collection will admit it."
