From Mizzenmast to Sandstroke

By Philip_H
Scale Lane swing bridge, Kingston upon Hull.

The bridge is one of only a few bridges which pedestrians can stand on/hop on and off as it moves to let boats pass by.

Whilst the bridge is still visitors can enjoy the peaceful birdsong soundscape which gives way to a rhythmic sequence of ship bells chiming whilst it is moving. Themed 'From Mizzenmast to Sandstroke' the artwork and sound installation recognises Hull's maritime history.

My brain can not wrap around this and so a charming modern abstract image for the corporate office maybe. You would be surprised what price a big print of this could earn for you. TG

Thanks, Tony.

This link gives a better overview of the bridge's form and how it operates.

What I like about it is that It has an old poster like appeal to it, Philip. Thank you for the link, a very interesting bridge.

Way more thrifty than a lift bridge. There is a counter-weight lift bridge across the Lachine canal in West side Montreal Quebec. It may have cost ten times the price of this modern span. TG
