The Forth Bridge

1.

South Queensferry Viewpoint

Many photos of the Forth Bridge have been taken from beside the Firth of Forth at South Queensferry, but this one has been taken from higher ground a little further back from the water at South Queensferry.  Please click on the image to enlarge it.

It shows the wooden jetty immediately to the east (right) of the stone pillars of the bridge, and to the west (left) of the furthest stone pillar.  This was presumably used during the construction of the bridge, and remained for some time after the bridge was completed in 1890.

When is this photograph likely to have been taken?  If you are able to tell, from this jetty, when the photo may have been taken, please e-mail me.

The Wooden Jetty

Please click on the picture below to see a clearer view of the wooden jetty beside the furthest stone pier.  This picture is an enlargement from a stereo view by B W Kilburn.

Another Wooden Jetty?

Clicking on the postcard image below appears to show a different jetty from the one in the main photograph above,  leading from the shore at South Queensferry.  The one in the postcard below appears to be on the west (near) side of the stone pillars.  If you know whether this is likely to have existed before or after the one in 1. above, please e-mail me.  Thank you.

 Postcard published by Alex G Anderson  -  The Forth Rail Bridge, possibly soon after construction in 1890
