Description

Clifton Suspension Bridge Bristol antique print. The Clifton Suspension Bridge is a suspension bridge spanning the Avon Gorge and the River Avon, linking Clifton in Bristol to Leigh Woods in North Somerset. Since opening in 1864, it has been a toll bridge; the income from which provides funds for its maintenance. The bridge is built to a design by William Henry Barlow and John Hawkshaw, based on an earlier design by Isambard Kingdom Brunel, and contributed to by Sarah Guppy. It is a grade I listed building and forms part of the B3129 road. This antique print is an original image of the Suspension Bridge from ‘The Queen’s Album of Clifton,’ a series of 12 small ‘photo-lithograph’ images, measuring 11 cm by 7½ cm, based on some previous steel line-engravings, published by Rock Brothers & Payne, and carrying the dates of the original engravings, in the lower right-hand corner.
