This unique steel Cantilever Bridge with three diamond-shaped towers crosses the river Forth between South and North Queensferry, Scotland. The bridge was designed by Sir John Fowler and Benjamin Baker. The bridge was built by Sir William Arrol.
Constructed started in 1883. The bridge was opened in 1890 at a cost of £2.5m (approx £225m at todays value)and 57 fatalities among the construction crew (it is now believed that the actual death toll is likely to have been closer to 80).
The bridge is still in use today, carrying the railways to the north from Edinburgh.
