Thanks for these. I've always seen the name of this bridge written as Gallows Bridge, so it's interesting to see an alternative spelling.

I crossed the bridge nearly every day to and from school. We thought of it as the Gallows Bridge but referred to it as the Gallas Bridge in the same way as we said fellas for fellows or windas for windows. This is an old undated postcard of the bridge as I remember it .

Here's another picture of the original wooden Gallows Bridge. Taken from the other side of the line to the postcard view.
