The Tay Bridge, Dundee

This is the Tay Bridge linking Dundee to Fife. In 1879, disaster struck when the bridge collapsed in very high winds and a train carrying some sixty passengers plunged into the river, all of whom died. The design of the Forth Bridge was influenced by the disaster and led to it being somewhat over-engineered but it’s stood the test of time. This photograph was taken in the 1890s and shows the replacement bridge which still carries trains across the River Tay. We love the sweeping curves of the bridge and the roadway in the foregraound.
