This evening I am presenting an image of the famous Forth Road Bridge, near Queensferry on the Forth of Forth.

This bridge is an iconic piece of Victorian engineering which is over one and a half miles long and 360 feet high.

The bridge was constructed between 1883 and 1890 using 60,000 tons of steel in the process.

Approximately 100 workers lost their lives during construction of the bridge.

The bridge is well worth a visit, especially for those interested in architecture and engineering. Queensferry is a quaint little town.
