There was a famous comedy monologue by Stanley Holloway about Runcorn Transporter. Sadly now replaced by an ordinary bridge.

61 years ago, to be exact!

I have a dim memory of crossing the transporter bridge as a small child. I was disappointed when we didn't get wound up to the top.

I hadn't heard of the Stanley Holloway piece and had to Google it. I see it features the same Albert of Albert and the Lion fame.
