Thanks for that, Mick Pearce: it places that firmly as being the Forth Road Bridge opened in 1964.
I was on one of the last of the car ferries across the Forth, a few days before the road bridge opened. Here's a link to John Watt's song, "Farewell to the Ferries".
Farewell to the Ferries


If you want to complete the trilogy of Forth Bridges, here is a great song by Robin Laing about the Rail Bridge.
Forth (rail) Bridge Song

And now the new bridge, named The Queensferry Crossing: a song written by a friend of mine, a Scot living in Australia, but she was over here at the time the bridge was being completed
