David Octavius Hill and Robert Adamson formed an Edinburgh based partnership which was active in the early, pioneering days of photography. At that time exposures lasted 2-4 minutes, even on a bright day and for that reason subject(s) eyes were avoided to minimise movement.

In the late Victorian period, Evelyn George Carey was active; he meticulously documented the construction of the Forth Railway Bridge. Also, Alfred Henry Rushbrook was active at the same time.

The best way to view the iconic Forth Rail Bridge is by boat.
