In most overviews of Prague's bridges the rail bridge and the Palacky aren't included, but each got its own stamp for the meeting in 1978. Looking north toward the center of town in the photograph.




(Hello Cursus, Add some of those beautiful Spanish bridges! K.)

Hello Cursus, When I found an elderly, cut (not perforated), Estland-Eesti bridge stamp in Grandmother's album I had the darndest time finding out when it had been issued and what bridge it was and why it had all that netting on it. Now I know that it is one in a set of 6 semipostal stamps issued in 1941 by the Germans who occupied Estonia in 1941, pushing out the Russians. The Russians dynamited the bridge while retreating, and a few years later the Germans dynamited the rest of it while retreating from the Russians. Your stamp has a cancellation which looks like 23 IX 41 and that is only a day after the stamps became available and TARTU but not the German Dorpat. I still don't know anything about my cut one. The surcharge was for reconstruction after the Russians had left. The memory of this grand old drawbridge (financed in part by Catherine II) is still very alive in Tartu; perhaps it will someday be rebuilt. (see also page 5, maybe Postmaster knows something?)

Kris: according to my 2005 Estonian catalog (Eesti Postmargid Tervikasjad Katalog)there were 2 prints of the 1941 Tartu stone bridge stamp.

1.- September 22th 1941 on thick, white, hard paper with lilac grey underprint network, thin yellowish white gum. Number of 20+20k umperf. stamps: 15.000

2.- November 14th 1941 on greyish white paper, dull colours and unclear print, yellowish brown underprint network, thick brownish shiny gum. Number of 20+20k umperf. stamps (whole set): 1.564.000

My stamp is on a philatelic letter, circulated with the whole series, from Tartu to Tallinn. Departing on 29/IX/1941 and arriving on 30/IX/1941 (as stated with a pm on the back). It's, obviously, from the first print (640.784 perforated stamps).

The Svatopluck Cechuv Bridge has not only very decorative lamp posts but also columns with victory figures at each end. The bridge dates from the early part of the past century and lies just down river from the old center of town.

The Manes Bridge lies just down river from the Charles Bridge and is one of the busy road bridges of Prague. The stamp belongs to the 1978 set.

The bridge just upriver from the Charles bridge has changed its name several times: built at the turn of the century (1899-1901) it was called the bridge of Franz I, then Smetana bridge, then bridge of the 1st of May and now bridge of the Legions. The bridge crosses the Moldau at the level of Strelecky island. The original bridge at this site was completely different and proved to be inadequate for heavy traffic and streetcar. The towers on the new bridge were toll houses.

Bridge midday Pick (Pont de l'Aiguile du Midi) - France. Alp Aiguille du Midi (Aiguille du Midi) in the western part of the massif of Mont Blanc. To get to the bridge connecting the two rocks together, you need to climb by cable car to the 2000-meter height. The bridge itself is very short, but those who suffer from acrophobia, he can seem endless!

The Alps have many roads and bridges that take your breath away, and that one up in the French Alps is pretty amazing. The old path in the Valley d'Annivers became a road on which even postal buses could travel, taking passengers along. The stamp belongs to the set honoring engineering, 1949.

Absolutely pretty swiss girls and Swiss bridges: the Pont de Perrolles in Freiburg and bridge in Zolothurn (not preserved, rebuilt)

Hello Alexey, In the 1939 stamp with the lovely lady one sees the bridge and the center of Fribourg with the church. The Perrolle bridge is a bit out of town, so I was wondering if it could be the Zaehringer bridge in the stamp instead. Both were built in the first half of the past century and have similar arches, but the Zaehringer bridge is much shorter and in view of the St. Nicolas Cathedral. In the first photograph you see the brand new bridge in the background and the Zaehringer bridge in town. (I also found a picture of its construction.) The lower photograph shows the Perrolles bridge. They all cross the Saane River.

Yesterday was Earth Day within Earth Month, this motif seems to fit very well. The small bridge in these setenant stamps of Portugal could be anywhere. The Kingfisher has a healthy environment, the gull does not. UN Conference on Environment and Development, Rio declaration of 1992.

Perhaps the most famous alpine rail, 1882, and road crossings are those over the Gotthard. The stamp of 1936 (similar to the one on page 8 of 1934) has a view down-valley in the Biaschino gorge. In the photograph the view is up-valley and includes the local road as well as the newer highway, 1983. (I don't know how many trains are in the picture, the loops in the tracks are quite long.)

The stamp of 1957 shows less detail than the earlier one, but does include one of the many tunnels. The photograph shows a section of the Matterhorn-Gotthard stretch of the route.



Nowadays the longest tunnel of Europe (57+ kilometers) is complete, the stamps of 2016 commemorate the grand opening in June. These stamps are quite unusual because the mountain cutaway has a very fine coating of Gotthard dust!

In the highlands bridges often go into tunnels, here is the first such stopy
