The railway bridge over the River Forth taken from the foreshore at South Queensferry in 1966.
After publishing a version of this photograph under the title Forth Railway Bridge. A correspondent wrote
having worked in South Queensferry for over thirty years, I would be lynched if I had referred to the bridge as anything other than the Forth Bridge. According to locals, there is the Forth Bridge and the Forth Road Bridge. Even "South Queensferry" is a bit of a misnomer as there isn't a town by that name, only "Queensferry" but ask anyone from "the village" where they live and it's always, "South Queensferry"!I would have thought that would be for fear of being thought of as coming from North Queensferry, but as we say down here
there's nowt so queer as folk.For more "Q" posts visit ABC Wednesday
