Middelburg Swinging Bridge

Here's an old scanned and cropped slide from 1976, of a swinging bridge in Middelburg, Holland. It would swing out of the way for boats to pass.
I'm linking up to Sunday Bridges and Vintage Weekly with this post.

  3. We have seen swinging bridges, but I think "yours" looks more artistic and less mechanical. Someday I will scan!

  8. My dear friend Al,

    Amazing photo: a bridge that hovers and symbolizes the hover of your life in so many places which have been joined in your thoughts and in your feelings for so many years!

    Many greetings to you and your family.
