DUNDEE'S THIRD BRIDGE - 1980's

First there was the Rail Bridge, then the Road Bridge and finally this piece of modern sculpture, called "The Bridge". This one was erected around the early 80's in Hunter Street, Blackness/Westport area, and made by artist Ron Martin. It was of course the kind of bridge you would have on a cello or double-bass. You can just make out the 4 notches along the top where the strings would go.

  1. I saw this daily when I was at Park Place nursery at the beginning of the 90's and have been trying to track a photo down for ages, as I wasn't really sure what it was called, or where it was, or if I had imagined it.

    On further investigation it turns out this belongs to the Uni, and is now in the Botanic Gardens.
