A timber bridge over the West Dart

This photograph shows the timber bridge which once spanned the West Dart river below Dunnabridge. The bridge was destroyed during the floods of 1947. This photograph is thought to date from the early 1900s (sometime between 1900 and 1914), and was taken by Norman Ruse - an amateur photographer and at one time the Chief Sanitary Inspector of Plymouth. The two men standing on the river bank have been identified as George Randall and Vincent Edwards.
