The Tyne Bridge and Swing Bridge, captured in a series of 10 images from the High Level Bridge to create a panoramic riverside scene. January 2011.
The Tyne Swing Bridge was first used for road traffic on 15 June 1876 and opened for river traffic on 17 July 1876. At the time of construction it was the largest swing bridge ever built. The construction costs were £240,000 (equivalent to £25M today).
The Tyne Bridge followed over 50 years later. It was officially opened on 10 October 1928 by King George V and has since become a defining symbol of Tyneside.
