  1. Those bridges — I forget what they are called — are quite the rage now. We have the first of the suspension bridges — big ones, anyway. Before that, there were some little ones meant for foot traffic, but not a real road. There’s a whole book about it: The Great Bridge: The Epic Story of the Building of the Brooklyn Bridge by historian David McCullough. I never thought a book about the building of a bridge could be so fascinating.

  2. Nice bridge with all the lines. Are they for helping hold it up? I don’t know much about bridges, since we don’t have any around here. I’ve been over a few big ones in other places, though. 🙂

      1. Thanks for the extra information, Becky. I really enjoyed reading more about it, and seeing the photos in the gallery on the site you linked to. The bridge is massive, and to see the materials used and the precision needed to construct it, just a work of art! 🙂

    1. It’s name is the Queensferry Crossing, and just behind it is the Forth Road Bridge and beyond that the Forth Bridge – the latter is an incredible rail bridge which also happens to be an UNESCO World Heritage site.
