Hi Steve!

Stamps with bridges seem to be not common at all. Hope this thread will attract some more. Very interesting to us.

We would like a bridge as all transport is by water unless you need urgent medical treatment & then a helicopter takes you to hospital. It happens very quickly when you need it. We even have an ambulance boat now. Family & KGV.

Bridge Gossip:

Intelligence:
Philatelic vignettes:
The Bridge of Spies
óGlienicke Bridge

On January 22, 1998, Germany issued a set of stamps featuring bridges under the motto, "Bridges Bring People Together." One of the bridges, the Glienicke, was also known the "Bridge of Spies." At the northern end (West Berlin) of the bridge a sign warned, "You are leaving the American sector." Under the four-power agreements
dividing up Berlin, it was reserved for Soviet and Allied military traffic.

In 1962, downed U-2 pilot, Francis Gary Powers, walked past Soviet spy Rudolf Ahel while he walked north across the bridge. In 1985, twenty-five Western agents were traded on the bridge for four East Bloc spies imprisoned in the U.S.

Bridge crossings such as these were dramatized in the cinema. The drama was always intensified by having the spies exchanged at night with shadowy Soviet personnel lurking in the background. It seemed to take forever for the Western individual to come "in from the cold" as the Eastern individual went back south to the Iron Curtain.
In fact the "walks" always took several suspenseful minutes even though these exchanges were almost always arranged ahead of time and were usually done in the daytime.

Acknowlegement Author Mr. Mark Somer.
If anyone has a scan of the Glienicke bridge, could they post it please.
