The photograph may
have been taken any time been taken some time before the card
was published. The number on the photo should indicate
the year that the photo was taken. In this case, the
number appears to be '6705' but that would indicate 1888 - two
years before the bridge was opened. so it appears that some of
the number may have been obscured by the dark background.
Are there any
railway enthusiasts who might be able to estimate when the
photo was taken? If you can help, please email me.
