Armstrong Whitworth AW650 Argosy BAR03_01_506
The nose cone, cockpit and port side of an Armstrong Whitworth AW650 Argosy on display at the Farnborough Airshow at the Royal Aircraft Establishment, September 1960. The Armstrong Whitworth Argosy was first flown in 1959. The civil model was given the number AW650 while the military models were assigned AW660; the two models were of very similar design. The aircraft in this photograph is likely a 102 series aircraft, built for British European Airways with the registration G-APRN and construction number 6654. Photographed by Norman Barnard

Widnes and Runcorn Transporter Bridge AA98_05132
The Widnes and Runcorn Transporter Bridge, Widnes, Halton, Cheshire. The transporter bridge was an unusual solution to moving vehicles across a busy shipping lane, in this case the River Mersey and the Manchester Ship Canal. A travelling platform hung from overhead gantries allowed ships to pass underneath. Built in 1905 on the suspension principle with a span of 1,000 feet it was the largest bridge of this type ever. It was demolished after 1961 when a new high level road bridge was built. Photographed in the early 1950s by Eric de Mare
