Building of the Tyne Bridge (1928)

It’s Newcastle’s most famous land-mark. A structure that has been admired, and even copied, throughout the world.

The Tyne Bridge.

We have shared some fascinating old pictures of the Tyne Bridge on our Facebook page in the past, including images of the construction worker’s in precarious positions as they built it.

We think you will agree that these photos are pretty special.
