Artist's Description

The Harbour in South Queensferry, Scotland.

The boat is the Reaper and you can see the Forth Rail Bridge behind it.

Reaper is a Fifie sailing herring drifter, the most popular design of fishing boat on the East Coast of Scotland for the greater part of the 19th and early 20th centuries.

She is shown here moored in the little harbour at South Queensferry, Scotland, where the public were invited aboard to view the boat and the museum display in the fish hold.

The Forth Rail Bridge is a unique steel Cantilever Bridge with three diamond-shaped towers crossing the river Forth at South Queensferry, Scotland. The bridge was designed by Sir John Fowler and Benjamin Baker and built by Sir William Arrol.

Constructed started in 1883 and it was opened in 1890 at a cost of £2.5m 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.
