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.
These three are our favourite photos – but check below them to see some video footage of the mighty Tyne Bridge being constructed way back in 1928 and visit this blog post for a deeper insight into what went into building this iconic structure.
These brave men had a very dangerous task in building the Tyne Bridge without modern day health and safety considerations….
It’s easy to forget about the construction process of this fine bridge when you see it day in day out – but it really is an impressive feat of engineering…
We think you will agree that these photos are pretty special.

Recently we came across some video footage of the Tyne Bridge being built – check it out below…
