Challenge your Camera #7 Bridges

This week Dr. B has posed the challenge of bridges. I remember posting some bridges earlier, but here goes again!

Arched glass bridge, Kings Park, Perth WA

Standing 52 metres high, the rusted steel structure finish was designed to blend in with the trees in the gardens. It provides a potent reminder of the rusted steel of camps, farms and mines in the Western Australian bush at the time of Federation. Source: Kings Park and Botanic Garden

Macclesfield Bridge

There is a short story about Macclesfield Bridge. In October 1874 a barge containing coffee and nuts exploded under this bridge. The bridge was destroyed and three men were killed, but the iron columns were left intact. The explosion could be heard from a mile away and caused uproar among the animals at the nearby London Zoo.
