Not everyone understands, friend Anonymous. There are many bridges I'd love to visit if I had a TARDIS.

TARDIS. "Time And Relative Dimension In Space". The time machine from Doctor Who.

This is a TARDIS bridge. One that I would like to travel back in time to see because its very interesting and no bridges like this survive today!
