A great view of the Menai suspension Bridge providing passage over the Menai straights between Anglesey and mainland North Wales.

The Menai bridge, designed by Thomas Telford & completed in 1826 it links the Isle of Anglesey with the Welsh mainland stretching over 170m of the Menai Straits.

This photo must have been taken before World War 2 as during the war my father recalled the three original wrought iron chains suspending the bridge deck were replaced with two steel chains. He was a second liutenant in the Home Guard and believed that the operation was carried out as secretly as possible in order to upgrade the weight limit from 6 tonnes in order to facilitate the rapid deployment of heavy armour in the event that Anglesey beaches were used by the enemy to land an invasion.

A sample link from the original chains used to be in the museum in Bangor but I haven't checked if it is still there.
