Wellington Suspension Bridge

The Wellington Suspension Bridge, also known as the Chain Bridge was opened in 1831 that enabled carts and carriages to cross the River Dee from Kincardineshire into the City of Aberdeen; Torry did not form part of the city of Aberdeen until an Act of Parliament in 1891.

The overgrowth of trees and the steep river embankment makes it very difficult to find the location which the older image was sketched, however you can still make out the same, distant kirk tower in both pictures. An amazing bridge structure that is now listed and this viewpoint frames the city then and now.
