The Tay bridge, Dundee, by Lynn Patrick, 2000. This railway bridge was first built in 1878. However, the following year, it collapsed due to hurricane force winds. A North British Railway passenger train was crossing it at the time and all 75 passengers were killed. A replacement bridge was built alongside and opened in 1887. This photograph shows piers of the original bridge alongside the new one.
