Opening of Spey Bridge, 1931

A photograph, taken at the opening of the Spey Bridge on 11 December 1931, showing 'The MacKintosh' (Colonel Grant-Peterkin, at centre), the engineer (B. Hall Blyth), Colonel G.P. and the contractor (J. Melville).

The bridge was built by the engineers Blyth and Blyth as a single segmental concrete arch of 240ft (73.2m) span, with 4 cross-linked ribs. The bridge carries the A939 over the River Spey, which forms the boundary between the parishes of Cromdale and Abernethy. It is located a mile southeast of Grantown-on-Spey.
