aerial photograph of Middlesbrough Transporter Bridge, England UK. Opened in 1911 it is one of the few remaining Transporter Bridges in the UK. With this type of structure the the passengers travel in a Gondola ( yellow structure under the left bridge pillar on the photo ) The Gondola is suspended from the frame and travels across the river. Its quite a large structure and can carry 200 people or 9 cars, or 6 cars and a minibus. This has the advantage of leaving the waterway clear of conventional bridge decks. The bridge cost £68,026 6s 8d and today is a Grade II listed monument.
The easiest way to navigate this gallery is using the geographic menu on the left. The aerial photographs are all organised in galleries according to their location so start with the county and then choose the town or village. Wales & Scotland are at the bottom under the English Counties. If your looking at a picture and are not sure where it is, click the arrow on the upper right and it will show you which album it is in. Click the album name to see nearby images. There is a search facility ( bottom left ) but this only works with words I have put into it. That's fine for searches of places or well known buildings but in most cases I have not entered road name or a post code. The gallery is only a small part of my collection of UK aerial photographs so please Email if you would like to buy an aerial view of something not in the gallery. There are over 25,000 photos in the gallery and I have an archive of around half a million pictures going back to 1999.
