Hear on the Forth Original Watercolour Painting | Forth Bridge Painting – Alan Reed
Haar on the Forth
Over the years I have painted many bridges. Probably the most dramatic is the Forth Rail Bridge that spans the Firth of Forth. This spectacular view from North Queensferry looking south depicts the bridge rising majestically out of the Haar like a Brontosaurus appearing out of some prehistoric swamp. The Forth Bridge Painting needs to bee seen to believe this outstanding piece of art.

History of the Forth Bridge, Fife Scotland
The Forth Bridge is a celebrated Scottish landmark, and a milestone in the development of railway civil engineering. It was the first major structure in Britain to be made of steel and its construction resulted in a continuous East Coast railway route from London to Aberdeen.
The first crossing of the Forth by the railway came in 1850 when the Edinburgh, Leith and Granton Railway started the world’s first ‘train ferry’ – a ferry boat specially designed by Thomas Bouch to take railway coaches – between Granton and Burntisland.
In August 1873 the North British Railway obtained authority to build a railway bridge across the Firth of Forth.
