Description

The Tay bridge, Dundee, by Chris Hogg, 1997. 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. The accident was the subject of an appalling poem by William McGonagall, 'The Great McGonagall'. A replacement bridge was built alongside and opened in 1887.
