Scope and Content Aerial view of Forth Railway Bridge, Fife and Lothian This vertical aerial photograph of the Forth Railway Bridge was taken during World War II by the Royal Air Force. This composite photograph of two images shows the full length of the Forth Railway Bridge and part of North Queensferry, including the coastal defence battery at Carlingnose Point.

These photographs were used to ascertain the accuracy of the pilot in photographing the target and to aid the skills of photographic interpretation. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
