EDITORS COMMENTS
This photograph captures the magnificent Royal Albert Bridge at Saltash, Cornwall, circa 1855. The image showcases the bridge's brick pillars and the beginning of its intricate metal fencing. As we gaze upon this historical print, we are transported to a time when this engineering marvel was still on land, leading towards the majestic River Tamar. Designed by the legendary Isambard Kingdom Brunel, this iconic structure stands as a testament to Victorian ingenuity and architectural brilliance. The Royal Albert Bridge was an integral part of Brunel's Great Western Railway project, connecting Devonport Dockyard with Plymouth and beyond. The photo offers us a glimpse into the past; it allows us to appreciate both the grandeur of this landmark and its significance in transforming transportation during that era. It is fascinating to see how Brunel seamlessly blended functionality with aesthetic appeal in his design. We owe our gratitude to the collaboration between the SS Great Britain Trust and the University of Bristol for preserving such valuable historical artifacts like this photograph. Through their efforts, we can continue to admire and learn from these remarkable achievements that shaped our world today. As we reflect on this image, let us celebrate not only Isambard Kingdom Brunel's genius but also those who have worked tirelessly behind-the-scenes to ensure that his legacy endures for generations to come.
