Workmen pause from the industrious task of riveting on Scarborough’s Valley Bridge as the cameraman takes their picture.

The bridge was originally known as Ramsdale Bridge opened on 1 July 1865 and was widened during the 1920s due to the rapid increase in motor traffic and new developments on Scarborough’s increasingly popular north side.
