These are images of the Queensferry area of
Scotland, which nestles on the Forth Estuary
under the shadows of the Forth Road Bridge
and the Forth Railway Bridge. The rail
bridge was built in 1890 and is currently
undergoing a major refit. Both these bridges
provide the vital rail and road links
between the southern area of Scotland to the
north and the highlands.
Queensferry is broken into two distinct
areas, South Queensferry and North
Queensferry which right up until the early
1960s were linked by the rail bridge and a
In 1964 the road bridge was finally built
and it straddles the forth from Port Edgar,
on the South Queensferry side - the Royal
Naval Base which once provided docking and
repair facilities for our naval fleet. Today
Edgar remains; secure in certain areas for
naval stores but most of it is now a marina
and dry dock for power boats and yachts.
This album will be expanded and added to on
a monthly basis to take in all the scenery
of Queensferry and its outlying areas.
