reneroine - Bienvenue ŕ SCF.

Since Tefloncinco hasn't posted anything here in quite some time, I thought I'd answer your question. Your train and bridge stamp was printed by lithography and issued by Iran in 1944, Scott No. 883.

Below a new issue of Germany.
This bridge connects the island of Fehmarn with the continent.
Not an attractive stamp, I think. But Germany seems to have lost part of its good taste.

While the stamps in the miniature sheet feature birds, the sheet background shows the night scene of the Henderson Waves, an artistic construction of a pedestrian bridge across Henderson Road. This miniature sheet was also released as an imperf.

This miniature sheet was released in 2009 for a joint issue between Singapore and the Philippines, on the theme of bridges. Of the 4 stamps, 2 show bridges in Singapore and the other 2 those from the Philippines. The bridges found in Singapore are the Cavenagh Bridge, one of the oldest bridge in Singapore, and the Henderson Waves; those found in the Philippines are the Bamban Bridge, and the Marcelo B. Fernan Bridge.

Retronatrix - Welcome to SCF! Your Japan prefecture stamp depicts the Oomishimabashi Bridge; it was issued on April 26, 1999, Scott No. Z301. Here is a slightly older Japanese bridge:

The Kintai Bridge is a historical wooden arch bridge, built in 1673, which spans the Nishiki River in a series of five wooden arches. It is located in the city of Iwakuni in Yamaguchi Prefecture, Japan. Here is an image of a stamp depicting this bridge, printed by lithography, and issued by Japan on October 10, 2000, Scott No. Z434, plus a photo of this popular tourist site.

The Martrou Lift Bridge, which crossed the Charente River in Rochefort, was built in 1964-66, but demolished in 1991. Here is an image of a stamp depicting the lift bridge, designed and engraved by Claude Haley, and issued by France on July 20, 1968 to commemorate the the opening of the bridge, Scott No. 1217, Y&T No. 1564. Note: The bridge in the background is the Rochefort-Martrou Transporter Bridge. It was built between 1898 and 1900, abandoned in 1967 for the lift bridge, but refurbished by 1994 and it is now open as a historical monument.

Five Slovenian bridges I. - 2013



Bridge over the Soča in Kanal
The mighty double arch stone bridge was built in the years between 1815 and 1817,with the help of priest, mountaineer, healer and printer Valentin Stanič and, rumour has it, based on plans by the famous architect Pietro da Nobile. During World War I, the bridge
shared the fate of the Posočje region. The war ended, and by 1920 the bridge`s fallen eastern arch was rebuilt as it had been before. The bridge became the most recognisable symbol of the town of Kanal. Today, it is especially renowned as the scene of dives into the blue Soča river.



The Triple Bridge in Ljubljana.
In the years 1841 and 1842, the old wooden Špital Bridge over the Ljubljanica, which is mentioned in written sources dating as far back as 1280, was replaced with a new stone double arch bridge under master builder Giovanni Picco. After the great earthquake of 1895, civic planners began considering plans to replace it with a new, wider bridge. The realisation of the plans was delayed until after World War I. The architect Jože Plečnik succeeded with his proposal that the venerable old bridge be preserved and complemented with 2 free-standing bridges that would serve as footbridges for pedestrians.
