I hope you like the new look I’ve given Beautiful Railway Bridge. Not actually a different theme, but a different header and background, plus the short back and sides I gave the sidebar. The header shows the Railway Bridge of the Silvery Tay looking particularly Beautiful. This is the second bridge over the Tay, the first one blowing down in a storm on “the last Sabbath day of 1879.” William McGonagall – my Muse and Spirit Guide – saw both being built, and wrote about both, most notably in The Tay Bridge Disaster. Here is Billy Connolly reading it in a blizzard on Dundee Law.
The background is one of the Great Man’s manuscripts, appropriately enough, Bonnie Dundee. Beautiful penmanship! This background feels absolutely right and fits beautifully both with the header and McGonagall’s founding influence on this blog. My only qualm is that Mcgonagall’s words might be a visual distraction from reading the words in the posts. I wanted the images to be more prominent, but not detract from the words.
Please let me know what you think. Thanks.
