Anyone know the bridge?
Anyone care to name the cars?

It looks like the Firth of Forth bridge in eastern Scotland, I'll let someone else name the cars. :-)

Mark, I agree. There's only one bridge in the world like that one. I recently read somewhere how long it tok to repaint that bridge and how much paint it took and how many paints lost their lives, It was mind boggling.

I have a picture of me in that exact location in 2008. It looks very much the same today except part of the bridge was replaced with a less elegant structure after the Germans bombed it. Also it is in color now.

According to the internet, the Firth of Forth railroad bridge was the first major steel structure built in England of steel. Construction started in 1883 and it opened in 1890.It took over 4,600 workers, of whom 63 lost their life, building it. The most recent repainting took place from 2002 to 2011 at a cost of 130 million Pounds, the equivalent of 218,413,000 US dollars. It was the first time since it was built that it was sandblasted to bare metal and repainted.

Third from the left is a Wolseley-Siddeley.

First from left could be a Minerva. Agree the 3rd from left is a Woseley Siddley.

2nd from left - I think I can see only a single spoke in the steering wheel. If so it could possibly be a big Humber.

I remember seeing that bridge featured on a TV show a few years ago along with some other remarkable ones, maybe Discovery channel or History channel or something. It is indeed something to behold, even on TV. I envy Royce, I can't hardly imagine what that looks like in person.
Carl, if you look closer at the picture, it looks to me that those "bricks" are actually stone blocks, very large ones at that. Compare them to some of the steel that is in that bridge. I think the location of the cars kind of changes the perspective of that thing, it is HUGE. That was one heck of an engineering and construction feet. Royce, can you post your picture? It would be interesting to see the changes that were made. Great picture Herb. Dave

Edinburgh number plates.
www.cvpg.co.uk/REG.pdf
1903 - 1962 AREA CODES : 1 LETTER
This table shows the original 1903 single letter area codes which were used as a prefix with up to four numerals (e.g. H7823). The date given is
the date when all possible combinations with that letter were used up and it ceased to be issued. From 1953 to 1962, some of these (D, E, F, H, K,
N, R, U, W) were re-issued by their original counties in a reversed "suffix" format (e.g. 7823H).
A London - 1905 J Durham - 1922 S Edinburgh - 1920

I now reassess my first thoughts and agree the 1st left is a Standard. 2nd left is a 1906-07 Humber. What a great photo.
