It is the longest bridge over the Charles River at 2,164.8 feet (387.72 sm; 659.82 m)" From Wikipedia, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harvard_Bridge.

The Pont Alexandre III is a deck arch bridge that spans the Seine in Paris. It connects the Champs-Élysées quarter with those of the Invalides and Eiffel Tower. The bridge is widely regarded as the most ornate, extravagant bridge in the city. It is classified as a French monument historique since 1975.

Good morning Mlandolfi, I see you were busy last evening.

You've posted some interesting cards, like this one. As you ca see in most postcard threads, both sides as shown. It saves us asking; Where is that bridge?

Why does it have an American flag on top? Why are two cars parked, with people on the bridge?

I'm guessing that this bridge is crossing the U.S. and Canadian border. Did you read thru each of those threads you posted in? By the time you do read all of the threads on postcards, you will have a greater knowledge of what makes a postcard collectable. And you will be entertained. More than likely you will find a post or two by me. Got a lot of cards, some where around 480+, 99% used.

Morning!

I have been busy posting. I will make sure to post both side going forwards. I will also get you the information in regards to this bride picture if needed.

I have not had much time to read through every thread but I intend to. I have been able to pinpoint my grandfathers personal collection, London, Black Americana, historical sights. My Grandpa was a WW2 vet and a nuclear physicist part of the Manhattan project and traveled the world, everywhere he would go he grabbed postcards. Then mail them to his family when he got home ask for them back. So about 90% of these post cards are his and his mother was a collector as well. Its been and great learning experience.

Hi, the details of the bridge card are not necessary for me, but future views/buyers. As you will see, there is interest in both sides.

Just got this card in today's mail. It was a lot in Jim Mehrer's last mail sale. When I send my bids, I reversed it's lot number, won that lot, recieved it, realized my error and sent the card back with my compliments & payment, and explanation. Jim said the other card didn't sell and sent it to me.
Happens to show the bridge across the Eel River. it's also a new eku for the John Williams number Hum 2450, moves the date up 4 months and 2 weeks.
