Artist's Description

My digital painting, using DAP & gimp, of the Forth Rail Bridge, Scotland 1898

No image may be reproduced, copied, edited, published, or uploaded without my permission.

Construction of the bridge began in 1882 and it was opened on 4 March 1890 by the Prince of Wales, the future Edward VII. The bridge spans the Forth between the villages of South Queensferry and North Queensferry and has a total length of 8,094 feet (2,467 m). When it opened it had the longest single cantilever bridge span in the world, until 1919 when the Quebec Bridge in Canada was completed. It continues to be the world’s second-longest single cantilever span, with a span of 1,709 feet (521 m).

The PD reference image, used for the digital painting, is as follows:
