Image ID:

There's no fog on the Tyne, but still plenty of atmosphere in this sunset view over the river from Gateshead in January, 1938, as a passenger train steams over Robert Stephenson's 1849 wrought iron High Level Bridge (a bravura double-decker exercise carrying a road beneath the railway level). Some 130 ft below can be seen part of William Armstrong's Swing Bridge. *** Local Caption *** Sunset, a view of the Tyne with a train crossing over the railway bridge in Newcastle.January 1938
