Forth Bridge: Restoring an Icon
Lily Publications, Apr 1, 2012 - Forth Bridge (South Queensferry, Scotland : Railroad bridge) - 128 pages
One of Scotland's most iconic landmarks, the Forth Bridge, has recently emerged from a decade long restoration project. Constructed of steel, and immediately recognisable with its 'Forth Bridge Red' paint, the cantilever rail bridge has seen thousands of men working long hours in dangerous conditions. Taking you on a photographic journey through the final days of the restoration, we show you how this truly iconic bridge has been saved for future generations. Kieran Dodds shares his vision of the bridge and the men who worked tirelessly to restore it, through captivating and atmospheric photographs. Dr Ann Glen, geographer and economic historian, takes us from the very beginnings of the bridge through to the modern day restoration. You can read about the men who worked on this internationally acclaimed project and learn how they delivered incredible results in the most challenging circumstances.
