" (...) It is by no means an imposing or even tolerably well-looking structure. (...) Viewed at sunset, when its dull tints are brightened into red, and with Montreal as a background, with its tin roofs and steeples gleaming like silver in the sun, it looks well enough, though never much more than an iron footpath to the picturesque city beyond; and few can believe at the first glance that it is really more than five times longer and bigger than the longest bridge ever yet constructed."
