EDITORS COMMENTS
This photograph, taken by Eric de Mare in 1954, showcases the historic Royal Albert Bridge in Saltash, Cornwall. The bridge spans the River Tamar, connecting Devonport in Devon to Saltash in Cornwall, and is an engineering marvel that has stood the test of time. Constructed between 1848 and 1859 under the visionary leadership of the renowned engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, this bowstring tubular plate girder railway bridge is a testament to the ingenuity and innovation of the Victorian era. The bridge's distinctive design, with its elegant arches and graceful curves, has made it a beloved symbol of the region and a popular destination for tourists. In this photograph, the bridge is brought to life as a goods train steams across it, adding a sense of motion and dynamism to the scene. The train's steam plume billows in the air, creating a stark contrast against the crisp, clear sky. The reflection of the bridge and the train on the calm waters of the River Tamar adds an extra layer of visual interest, making for a truly captivating image. The Royal Albert Bridge is not only a vital transport link but also a cherished piece of history. Its enduring beauty and engineering prowess continue to inspire awe and admiration, making it a must-see destination for anyone with an appreciation for the past and the marvels of engineering.
