The Forth Bridge

A Picture History
by Sheila MacKay - Find out more about the author

‘A book to stir wonder and pride’ – The Herald

The Forth Bridge was the greatest engineering feat the Victorian world had ever seen. The first large structure made of steel, it remains to this day one of the great achievements of mankind. This new edition of The Forth Bridge, A Picture History tells the dramatic story of its construction using rare archive photographs.

Sheila Mackay lived for several years in Egypt and North America before returning to her native Scotland to bring up her family and work as a journalist. She founded Moubray House Press in Edinburgh's Royal Mile and later wrote several non-fiction books and a novel. She divides her time between Scotland and Spain.
