  • Description

    Full title reads: "Middlesbrough. First vertical bridge in Europe (there is only one other in the world). First span placed in position - when finished it will be hoisted up and down to enable shipping to pass."

    Middlesbrough, Cleveland.

    Dark shots of large piece of iron work being carried across River Tees on boat.

    The lengthy span is being lifted into place as the first cross piece of the new bridge. Quite a few people have come out to watch the work. Shots of the metalwork as it is lifted into place. As it moves into place we can see the huge scale of the bridge as tiny men can be seen walking across.
