Description

The building of the Forth Bridge, about 1887. The Forth Bridge, over the Firth of Forth, north of Edinburgh, was built between 1883 and 1890. Before the bridge was built passengers were transported over the Firth of Forth by ferry. However, the building of the bridge meant that those people travelling north from Edinburgh got there much more quickly. The bridge was made from tubes of steel plate, that were 12' in diameter.
