Old Photograph Biplane Flying Past Forth Railway Bridge Scotland

Old Photograph of a Biplane flying past the Forth Railway Bridge over the Firth Of Forth by South Queensferry near Edinburgh ,Scotland. This feat of Victorian engineering has joined St Kilda, Edinburgh and the Great Wall of China on Unesco as a World Heritage Site. The Forth Bridge is a cantilever railway bridge over the Firth of Forth in the east of Scotland, 9 miles west of central Edinburgh. It was opened on 4 March 1890. The bridge connects Edinburgh with Fife, leaving the Lothians at Dalmeny and arriving in Fife at North Queensferry and onwards to Perth, Perthshire, connecting the north east and south east of the country. The bridge was begun in 1883 and took 7 years to complete with the loss of 98 men. Until 1917, when the Quebec Bridge was completed, the Forth Bridge had the longest single cantilever bridge span in the world, and it still has the world's second longest single span.
