The Forth Road Bridge is a suspension bridge in east central Scotland. The bridge opened in 1964 and at the time was the largest suspension bridge in the world outside the USA.
Are they workers? They have exactly steel balls.
Is that guy wearing a suit?
Are they even clipped on? Is that guy in the foreground in a suit? This is an awesome picture!
Don’t think those helmets would help them much
Looks like it would make a great album cover
Yep. This ranks alongside "Lunch Atop a Skyscraper" for "picture that leaves me with my heart in my mouth decades after the fact". Those guys must have shotputs down their pants.
What is going on here? I’m thinking the camera angle is obscuring a platform or something underneath these men. Perhaps it’s more safe than it seems and they are just posing for a photo op?
Glad to see they have their hard hats on
I think it’s cool how they can listen to the cables snapping because of corrosion.
They have hard hats, so I’m pretty sure this is 100% OHSHA approved…
Back when men were real men. Health and safety was considered as suspicious and unpatriotic as communism. And steel was clearly invisible?
Scotland only had three bridges prior to 1961?
At first glance I thought this was a band’s album cover.
Fully clothed I’ll float away, Down the Forth into the sea.
My uncle helped build that bridge, I literally live like 20 mins away from it, had no idea they did that tho
Oh fuck no!!!!!
