"Jumped from suspension bridge and lived, the true story of Sarah Ann". Sarah Ann Henley miraculously survived the 250-feet drop after jumping off the Clifton Suspension Bridge in 1885. Her Victorian skirt, inflated by the wind, acted as a parachute. A tale told by contrasting three detailed newspaper articles with a sober use of image.
