  • Description

    Full title reads: "Glaisdale. An Engineering Record - delicate, and at moments exciting task of hauling a 155 ton bridge - replacing one washed away by floods - 144 ft across River Esk, (TC obscures rest)."

    Glaisdale, Cumbria (?)

    Various shots of stones from bridge washed away in floods. Water flows past the remaining stones. Railway tracks hang in mid air where once the bridge had supported them.

    Shots of large new metal bridge being slowly moved into position.

    I\'m pretty certain that this is Glaisdale in N. Yorks. Not Cumbria.
