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.

I think bridges are so amazing 🙂 must look out the book
Cool bridge. We have a similar one in Boston. I hope none of the cords snap!
Yikes, that would be scary!
Love these bridges!
But why of why do they have to be on top of each other!!!
Easiest point to build a crossing?
I guess . . .but from the other side it seems such a mess!
A fine line square today Brian 😍
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. 🙂
They add strength, which is critical given the winds on this stretch of river and the amount of traffic. You can discover more here https://www.theforthbridges.org/queensferry-crossing/
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! 🙂
So glad you enjoyed finding out more. It is extraordinary.
Amazing lines in that structure. Mine, not a river, but…
You’ve captured the ripples beautifully
Beautiful photo. Like an arrow pointing to the heavens!
Thank you 😀
That bridge makes the cruise ship under it look tiny. Great lines.
Here is my entry for the day.
I know! It’s an amazing river to be beside.
Beautiful sky lines from you today Cee 😍
What an interesting bridge!
Here is my entry: https://nowathome.wordpress.com/2019/10/11/october-squares-zig-zag/
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.
That is just amazing! 3 of them, wow!
What a cool bridge!
And there are another two right behind it!
I love this kind of bridge architecture – very spirit lifting with all those slender strands.
Very . . specially when the sun is shining!
It’s a piece of art!
