That is quite the unique bridge, Peter. It is a great picture and I like that Penny is in there too.
....peter:): thank you Astrid... it's very well built in 1779... and still stands just as proud as on its opening say... Penny gave a good scale to the size of the bridge....petersmile
Since we were there the bridge has had some restoration and has been returned to its original red colour.
....peter:): that is so sad Bill... i liked just as it was....petersmile

I can just imagine how the children and their mothers worked the mines and foundries to produce this lovely bridge.
....peter:): there is no reason to think like that anymore Louis... it was a long time ago... and things have changed since then in the civilized world...
just think about the mothers who built the tanks... airplanes... guns and the ammunition during WW2....petersmile
This is a wonderful piece of art. Waving hello to Penny.
....peter:): Penny wave a good scale to the size of the bridge Care... she waved back at you....petersmile
This is a good viewpoint Peter, Penny being there givs a sense of scale.
....peter:): thank you Brian... everything worked out well in this photo....petersmile
Such a beautiful's well worth the visit! smile

Good detail shot Peter, sometimes it’s good to get close.
i think I just saw this bridge in a Rick Steves Travel episode.
