Tamar Bridge and my Dad

Built in late 50s/ early 60s linking Plymouth and Saltash in Cornwall. These pictures and over a hundred more, were in my Dad's archive - they are a unique record of Plymouth's iconic bridge being constructed and those who worked on it/

Unfortunately - the age of the photos mean that the colour has deteriotrated.
My Dad on the right. Aged about 18/ 19 here - one of his first ever jobs as an electrician.

Again - my Dad several years before I was born.
Construction in process
