Hundreds of photos showing the building of the Forth Road Bridge have been found at a time when the troubled structure remains closed due to safety concerns.<br />
<br />
The incredible archive includes stomach-churning images of workers helping to fix the steel suspension cables into position 500ft above the Firth of Forth in Scotland.<br />
<br />
The photos was taken for engineering firm Sir William Arrol & Co which produced and installed the steelwork for the bridge. They were retained by a member of staff who cleared out the officers when the firm went bust in the 1980s.
