Archive of the month: Conwy Castle and Telford’s Conwy Suspension Bridge

View of Conwy Castle and Telford’s Conwy Suspension Bridge, late 19th century. The photograph was taken before the Conwy Road Bridge was constructed in 1958 which originally carried the A55 until the Conwy Tunnel was built in 1991. Imagine the traffic jams today if that was the only bridge!
