Thank you to Allan Dodds for allowing me to reproduce his photograph
above of the Forth Road Bridge under construction.
- In 1958, approval was given to build the bridge.
- In 1960, the towers were being built.
- In 1962, the cables were attached
- In 1963, the girders for the road were being hung from
So I assume that the photo above would
have been taken around 1960-61.
The bridge was officially opened by the Queen on September 4,
