Description:

Fifty years ago, the new Forth Road bridge opened up Fife to road transport in the same way that its rail neighbour saw Fife and all points north grow and expand as a result of the extra traffic in the 1890s. Michael Meighan tells the story of the two Forth bridges, the predecessor of the rail bridge and the new Queensferry Crossing, which opens in 2016. Profusely illustrated with images showing the bridges over time, from a variety of angles and with much of interest from ships heading for Rosyth for scrapping to unusual trains and even IrnBru advertising, for after all, it too is made in Scotland from girders.
