Pray tell, what is a 'Forth Bridge'?

In this instance its
crossing the Forth estuary in Scotland, had the world’s longest spans (541 m) when it opened in 1890. It remains one of the greatest cantilever trussed bridges and continues to carry passengers and freight. Its distinctive industrial aesthetic is the result of a forthright and unadorned display of its structural components. Innovative in style, materials and scale, the Forth Bridge marks an important milestone in bridge design and construction during the period when railways came to dominate long-distance land travel.

There are other 'Forth' bridges, one near us, but nothing of the Scottish grandeur.

The one posted is magnificent, and beautifully captured

To John, Richard, and Renata, thank you very much for your answers.. I suspected something like that but didn't realize it was such a big deal.. I spent some time on the Wiki article.

Jeffrey, you're more than welcome. I didn't have a clue either until I found that Wiki article.
Richard is the specialist here. I suspect that he may have even designed some bridges or done some work related to the construction of some...I'm clueless and only paint some from time to time :)

Renata my life revolved around bridges but design wasn't in the equation.
Well only once when the designers gave me a bridge to setout that was far wider than the road reserve.
I did redesign that to suit the road and we never told head office.  :p
I've worked on many though.
Many come with interesting stories and characters. But that's for another chapter.
Bridges are always of interest to me.

Well, I knew that you were involved in way or another. Good on you for re-designing one and never telling the head office!
Care to show some pictures of it one day?

By the way, I'll be in Australia for a full month, July to be specific and would love to somehow meet you but I'm afraid I'm not going to make it to Tassie. But if by any chance you may end up coming to either Melbourne or Sydney, let's talk :)

Thanks Renata. I wont be up that way. It's only a short hop across the strait but time would not allow.
I'm actually not a fan of city life, just a country hick as they say.
Trust you have a rewarding time back DownUnder. If you do venture across then yell out.

With regards to the bridges, I know you'd relate, a bridge should be more than function. There is no excuse for the mundane and good artistic flair should be an integral part of any bridge design/ construct.

And yes, I'll grab some photos of locals including the one mentioned, but they are the 'mundane' (boring) variety unfortunately.

This is an old low water crossing of the Glover River in SE Oklahoma, between the communities of Glover and Wright City. It is definite proof of two things, 1. you don't mess with the Glover, and 2. nature reclaims. I've driven over it many times, and swam in the river here many times back in the day.

In the second picture you can see the ends of chipper blades used to reinforce the concrete. The blades are from the sawmill that was in Wright City until a few years ago. If you've never seen a chipper in operation, it is absolutely the scariest machine I've ever seen.

These were taken in 2009. Shots of the new bridge will be coming sometime this summer. I hope. :-D
