Photograph. Solomon Islands crossing the Britannia Tu

7×5 Inch (18x13cm) Print. Solomon Islands crossing the Britannia Tubular Bridge, c 1956. The ex-London, Midland & Scottish Railway Jubilee class 4-6-0 arrives on the mainland from Anglesey. Two people wait by the fence to wave. The Britannia Tubular bridge spanned the Menai Straits connecting Holyhead and Anglesey. Designed by Robert Stephenson (1803- 1859), it was completed in 1850, but badly damaged by fire in 1970. The bridge was rebuilt with a road deck above the railway. .
