The Tyne Bridge, linking Newcatle upon Tyne with Gateshead is a particularly striking structure. Designed by Mott, Hay and Anderson, and built by Dorman Long & Co. of Middlesbrough it was opened by King George V in 1928. It is the largest single-span steel arch bridge in the UK, and was the prototype used by Mott, Hay and Anderson for their design of Sydney harbour bridge, Australia which opened four years later.

Myers' became the RCA's first Professor of Industrial Design, setting up the foundation course combining industrial design with engineering in conjunction with neighbouring Imperial College in 1961. His keen interest in what Myers taught appears again and again in his paintings, notably in his fascination with bridges.
