Taken before 2 October 1939, this image of the Forth Bridge may have served as an intelligence source in the planning of the first German air attack on Scotland of the Second World War, on 16 October 1939. Details of the fabric of the bridge and the position of anti-aircraft and coastal defence batteries are noted on the graphic. The shape and construction of the cantilever rail bridge is clearly revealed by its shadow.
