100 year old Bridge.

I couldn't  let July 2013 go by without mentioning that the present Town Bridge was opened in July 1913, exactly 100 years ago.
It replaced Rennie's cast-iron bridge of almost a century earlier and between the times when the old bridge was demolished and the new one was built a temporary footbridge was erected. The pictures below tell the story.

And finally the official opening in 1913.
