Artist's Description

An Historic Scotland Category A Listed Bridge

The world famous Forth Bridge from South Queensferry, Scotland.

As one of the most photographed bridges in the World (probably the most photographed bridge in Europe) it has been frustating (from a photographer’s perspective) during the last 10 years while the bridge has been constantly covered in scaffolding and plastic sheeting as a new space age coat of paint was applied. Thankfully, the scaffolding and plastic sheeting has come down and the bridge can once again be seen in all its glory.

This unique steel Cantilever Railway Bridge with three diamond-shaped towers crosses the River Forth from South to North Queensferry.

The Forth Bridge is an Historic Scotland Category A Listed structure. HB Number 40370.

Construction started in 1883. The bridge was opened in 1890 at a cost of £2.5m (~£205m in today’s prices) 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. Along with the Forth Road Bridge (about half a mile to the west) these two bridges form the main traffic arteries north and south.
