Forth Road Bridge  1964
Forth Road Bridge 1964
Not long before its completion and opening on 4 September 1964. The access platform to the south tower is still in place. Taken from almost the same position as Alan Findlay's photo of two years earlier NT1278 : The Forth Road Bridge, so the progress made in two years can be seen.
