The Great Forth Bridge



The National Library of Scotland has made available online nine fascinating and rare images of the Forth Bridge under construction in 1886 and 1887, taken by photographer Philip Phillips, the son of one of the engineering contractors. In addition, there are three further images from other sources including a watercolour and two illustrated journal entries.
