Van Staaden'Gorge Bridge

In my earlier blog I made reference to Van Staaden's bridge ,it is still the highest two foot gauge bridge ever built. It stands 254ft. from floor of the gorge to the top. Sydney Moir's 24 Inches Apart gives a good account of it's construction.The picture is from a series of cards by 'The Iperial Tobacco Co'. It is no.3 in a series of 50 cards.
