EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the iconic Tees Transporter Bridge in all its glory. Standing tall against the backdrop of Middlesbrough, Cleveland, this remarkable structure is one of only four transporter bridges in all of Britain. Constructed back in 1911, it was a marvel of engineering for its time. The photograph showcases the bridge's unique design, with a moveable platform suspended by sturdy cables from a steel frame. This innovative approach allowed passengers and vehicles to smoothly traverse across the mighty River Tees without disrupting shipping activities. The bridge's purposeful construction aimed to minimize any disruption caused to maritime traffic. Taken by acclaimed photographer Eric de Mare in 1955, this image perfectly encapsulates the grandeur and historical significance of this architectural masterpiece. De Mare's keen eye for detail beautifully captures every intricate element of the bridge's structure. As we gaze upon this striking image, we are transported back in time to an era when engineering feats like these were celebrated as symbols of progress and innovation. It serves as a reminder that even amidst changing times, some landmarks stand strong as testaments to human ingenuity and perseverance. This stunning photograph is not just a visual delight but also an invaluable piece of history preserved through lens and paper – forever capturing the awe-inspiring beauty that is Tees Transporter Bridge.
