Photograph of the Queensferry cantilever and 8 spans of approach viaduct. One of the few views showing approach viaduct south side, but has a slight defect in its perspective, on which account a better view was afterwords secured, and is therefore to be preferred. Transcription from: Philip Phillips, 'The Forth Railway Bridge', Edinburgh, 1890.
