Here is an attractive view
looking down on South Queensferry and it ferry. The ferry service
continued until the Forth Road Bridge opened in 1964.
The stonework on the towers
of the Forth Rail Bridge looks very clean. The bridge would probably
be a little over ten years old when this photograph was taken.
The train has been
photographed in a good position on the bridge. The smoke and steam
from the train and ferry add to the atmosphere of this picture.
The jetty is still used for
pleasure sailings in "Maid of the Forth" which sails to the Island of
Inchcolm with its abbey and seabirds, close to Aberdour on the north coast
of the Firth of Forth
