Вдогонку к предыдущему посту про Тейский мост. Отыскались любопытные дополнительные материалы о происшествии.

1. Королева Виктория едет в первом поезде после открытия Тейского моста:

2. Гравюра “Spirit of the storm” от 1879:

3. Газета "Кристиан геральд" от 7 января 1880, через полторы недели после катастрофы:

4. Гравюра "Водолазные работы на месте крушения", Illustrated London News, январь 1880.

Ну и подробнейшая статья о катастрофе на английском языке с выдержками из прессы того времени:

The news which was spread abroad on Monday that the great railway bridge across the Tay had been blown into the river by the violence of the gale, seemed so improbable that many people refused credence to it. But later telegrams came corroborating the first vague rumour, and before evening it was placed beyond the shadow of doubt that a disaster had occurred, which from its sudden and unexpected character, and terribly fatal results, may well be regarded as a sad climax to the misfortunes of a peculiarly calamitous year. The dreadful story may be told in a few words.
