A couple of Steampunk bridge photos that I could not resist.

Both the Forth Bridge:



Showing the Queensferry lighthouse and the bridge as the impressive backdrop.

Secondly the recently built (new) steam engine Tornado crossing the Forth Bridge.



Right click each select view image to see the image in full size.

Remember, that's a Victorian bridge!

A few nice ones and some fugly ones - but it seems as if the older architecture is reserved mostly for tattoo parlours, pubs, dives and entertainment, is there something going on there is Australasia that we haven't been told about?

Gentrification goes in odd directions when counter-culture becomes culture, and alternative lifestyles simply become the latest fad fashion. You can't have a building serve the same purpose forever, and those who come in after the event to reuse the building are now often the formerly-radical fashionistas who still think tattoos make you edgy.
This has happened to Kuranda, renowned for its eco-tourism but incessantly giving you unrecyclable lids for your homemade, locally-grown, rainforest-blend coffee and not having any visible recycling bins about anyway.





Still, what explanation does a pub need?

Pubs, churches, stations and bridges. A good steampunk combination.

The González County Courthouse, in Texas, finished in 1896. The town of González, the historic county seat, was founded by the first English speaking settlers invited by the Mexican government in the 1820s.

Yesterday I had the pleasure of visiting Rothley railway station, near Leicester.  Built in the middle 1890s and restored to Edwardian splendour.

Persons intending to travel by open carriage should select a seat with their backs to the engine, by which means they will avoid the ashes emitted therefrom, that in travelling generally, but particularly through the tunnels, prove a great annoyance; the carriage farthest from the engine will in consequence be found the most desirable.

The Manchester, Sheffield and Lincolnshire Railway...

As was.  (They rebranded as Great Central in 1897).  There is an MSLR noticeboard on the side of the staircase though.
