First thought was the Camus Great Northern railway bridge, but it's not quite right, the piers are too short and the metal lattice structure is wrong.

Construction wise it's pretty similar to the Worcester rail bridge over the Severn, but it's too long for that.

Belatucadrus, I think the postmark is Sion Mills which is in Co Tyrone.

There is or was a Sion mills bridge which connected to the mills in Co Tyrone but is no longer in use. But I don't think it is that one. Could be I suppose.the pillars look about right but not sure about the top part

I have spent entirely too long staring at old photos of rail bridges and found nowt. I am officially handing in the towel on this one, I surrender.

Belatucadrus, I know the feeling....!

As the card was published by Burrows, Photographer, Strabane we know it to be Irish but I do not think it necessarily has to be a view in Co. Tyrone - it could be anywhere in Ireland.
