This is a pictorial story of the greatest engineering achievement of the Victorian Age - the construction of the Forth Bridge, the largest bridge in the world. This collection of photographs, taken over the seven years in which construction of the bridge was completed, bear witness to the dramatic scale of the project. The supporting captions provide details of the timescale, characters, achievements and tragedies involved in what the HRH The Prince of Wales described in 1890 as "a structure so stupdenous and so exceptional in its character".
