Image of the Month

The image for January and February 2021 is from stock media when searching for the term 'engineering'.

I like the fact that large-scale engineering is associated with bridge architecture. I don't actually know this bridge but perhaps someone can recognise it for me? I have written in the book 'Building Passions' about the close relationship between civil engineering and architecture in the 19th Century at least. This was linked to the use of new materials such as iron, steel and reinforced concrete. I'm looking at the relationship more closely as part of my PhD research into the influence of technical standards on the development of modern architecture in Belgium and Northern France pre-WW1.
