Tees Transporter Bridge Book Launch

On Saturday 5th July I held a book launch at the Tees Transporter Bridge for my new book which is, perhaps not that surprisingly, about the Tees Transporter Bridge. Below are some photographs from the event. Special thanks to John Rymer for sharing his photographs for the blog. The event was a fantastic opportunity to talk to some like-minded people and they were very generous with their purchases – there are now only 4 copies of the colour first edition left for sale. 

A second black and white edition will be published early autumn before the bridge’s 103rd birthday.
