Relief on the English tower of the Union Chain Bridge

  • Description

    "The relief of intermingled roses and thistles appears on the English tower of the Union Chain Bridge. The text reads VIS UNITA FORTIOR 1820. This translates as United strength is stronger and 1820 is the year the bridge opened. There is an identical relief on the tower on the Scottish side of the bridge. " Photo by Graham Robson, 2015.
