Abstract
Built between 1854 and 1859, the Great Victoria Bridge (later the Victoria Jubilee Bridge and now known simply as the Victoria Bridge) was the first bridge to span the St. Lawrence River connecting the island of Montreal to the rest of North America. When it was built, it was the longest bridge in the world. Designed by Robert Stephenson, the bridge contractors were the British partnership of Peto, Brassey and Betts. Most of the bridge labourers were Irish immigrants.
