Posted April 20, 2012, by Paul Nadal (paul [dot] nadal [at] libertysurf [dot] fr)

Hi, Your photos of this bridge are beautiful and interesting. The system of construction of this bridge is old (1890s ?) Do we know the date, and those of the repairs and that company has built . Thank you advance . Sincerely .
