Old Photograph Erskine Bridge Scotland

Old photograph of the Erskine Bridge which spans the River Clyde near Glasgow, Scotland. The bridge, designed by Dr William Brown, born 16 September 1928, died 16 March 2005, connects West Dunbartonshire with Renfrewshire and can be used by all types of motor vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians. As well as crossing the Clyde, the bridge also crosses the Forth and Clyde Canal and the North Clyde railway line. A small part of Kilpatrick railway station is situated underneath the bridge at the north side. The bridge is part of the A898 road. On completion the bridge replaced the Erskine to Old Kilpatrick ferry service. A nearby hotel uses the name of the bridge. It is known as Erskine Bridge Hotel. The bridge is one of Scotland's most notorious suicide spots: estimates suggest that more than fifteen people commit suicide there each year.
