Harper Bridges: Tension, suspension and arch, Aberdeen

About this event

Harper's of Aberdeen developed light foot suspension bridges from 1870-1916 and exported them in kit form throughout the then Empire.

They were originally fencers and Douglas Harper, a member of the family, will describe how their fencing expertise informed their later bridge building. Their influence can still be discerned in Nepal's suspension bridges today.

Registration from 5.30pm for a 6.00pm start.
