A view of the remarkable suspension bridge over the River Tweed between Horncliffe in Northumberland and Fishwick, Berwickshire, with an angler in the foreground. When it opened it was the longest wrought iron suspension bridge in the world; it is now the oldest suspension bridge still carrying road traffic. Captain Samuel Brown (1776-1852) championed the Royal Navy's use of chain link cables to replace unreliable hemp ropes in rigging. Leaving the navy he set up a chain-making company which provided the navy with chain until 1916. He also provided chain for Brunel's SS Great Eastern: the famous photographe of Brunel by Robert Howlett includes these chains. In 1817 he took out a patent titled the 'Construction of a Bridge by the Formation and Uniting of its Component Parts'. In 1819 he started building this bridge, with the help of John Rennie on the masonry, finishing in less than a year. In 1823 he built the Chain Pier in Brighton. In 1838 Brown was knighted by Queen Victoria.
