The fascinating story of the Forth Bridge is related here. The bridge is a functional monument, now transporting 200 trains a day and three million passengers a year, a symbol of Scotland and of human ingenuity, a pinnacle of Victorian enterprise and engineering, and a memorial to the men who died in its creation. As part of their contribution to the centenary of the Forth Bridge, a group of eminent engineers reassessed the bridge from the standpoint of current engineering knowledge. This lavishly illustrated book is the result.
