Crescent Bridge (1913)

An “Ale & Stout” hand cart being pushed from Station Road on to the foot of Cowgate in early 1913, shortly before the opening of the Crescent Bridge.

At this point, the old subway was still in use (far left) and, just out of shot to the left, was the accident prone level crossing which gave way to the subway and, subsequently, the new bridge.
