The Emerging Mersey

The river Mersey after being formed by the confluence of the Tame and Goyt is quickly culverted under the Merseyway shopping centre before emerging under the Bear Pit and flows under Wellington Road bridge towards the Stockport Viaduct.

This looks like it could be part of an archival photo collection of old Stockport.

What a vintage looking shot of the river and the bridge. I like the way you are able to capture the feel of the movement of the water. genie

A very interesting shot, Gerald. «Louis» appreciates the little historical details you add for context.
He is especially appreciative that you've posted three bridges today to «Louis'» 100th Sunday Bridge post.

We all think of the Ferry here, but these bridges were eaually interesting, if not more so.

@RuneE: The ferry of course is 50 miles downstream from here.
