EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures a moment frozen in time, showcasing the iconic Widnes and Runcorn Transporter Bridge in all its glory. Taken by renowned photographer Eric de Mare during the early 1950s, this image offers a glimpse into an era when road transport was rapidly evolving. The bridge itself stands tall and proud, spanning across the river with its distinctive design. Its moving platform is filled with vehicles of various shapes and sizes, each representing a different chapter in automotive history. From sleek cars to sturdy trucks, these vehicles paint a vivid picture of transportation during that period. But it's not just about the machines; people can be seen going about their daily lives on this bustling bridge. Whether they are commuters heading to work or families embarking on an adventure, their presence adds life and vibrancy to the scene. Beyond its aesthetic appeal, this photograph also highlights the engineering marvel behind such an impressive structure. The intricate details of the bridge's construction are evident as you study each rivet and beam carefully placed together. As we gaze upon this remarkable piece of history captured through Eric de Mare's lens, we are reminded of how our world has evolved over time. This print serves as both a testament to human ingenuity and a nostalgic reminder of days gone by along the banks of Widnes - Runcorn Transporter Bridge.
