RAILWAY DISASTER MAIL

By Robin Gwynn FRPSL, FRPNZ and Norman Hoggarth




The picture of the Tay Bridge Disaster recalls the great words of William Topaz McGonagall, Poet & Tragedian of Dundee. His famous poem, published by David Winter & Son Ltd, of Dundee, begins ....


The Tay Bridge Disaster

Beautiful Railway Bridge of the Silv'ry Tay!

Alas! I am very sorry to say

That ninety lives have been taken away

On the last Sabbath day of 1879,

Which will be remember'd for a very long time.
