Correspondence on Menai Straits Suspension Bridge

Sir,-Never having seen the above Bridge, except from a distance, and in illustrations, I should be interested to know if you can ascertain the function of the hangers in the approach spans. In other bridges of this type which have hangers in the approach spans such as the Brooklyn Bridge or Hammersmith Bridge, these hangers support, the floor in a similar way to the hangers in the main span.
