I went along to the book launch of this, this morning at the Hawes Inn. It’s written by Elspeth Wills, founder of Scotinform and my old boss.
It looks like a very interesting read and sheds a whole new light on the building of the bridge.
Note. Whilst this is an excellently written post, Jeana (who wrote it) seems to forget that “I’ means Mark Gorman, not ‘she’ as in Jeana Gorman. It’s a borderline case of unacceptable blog hijacking but you would think that ‘she’ would want her own blog (which she has, as it happens. Here in fact.)
Anyway, good luck to Elspeth (a good pal of mine) on her latest book.
