View of the two bridges which connect Anglesey with mainland Wales. To the left the Menai bridge built by Thomas Telford and quite an ingenious piece of engineering at the time. To the right the Britannia bridge with the road on top and the train line below. All this to the backdrop of the Snowdon mountain range.
