Photographer's Note

Not a good weather to go out and take photos, so I use my archives to post on TE ...

Here is a photo of Pont de Pierre (Stone Bridge in english), token about 2 years ago on a week end in Bordeaux area. Pont de Pierre crosses river Garonne and is the link between left bank and La Bastide neighbourhood. It was built from 1810 to 1822 following a will of Napoléon 1st. The streams are strong in the river at that place, so it was a hard work to build the bridge ! The bridge has a length of 487 metres. It has 17 arches, the same as the number of letters in Napoléon Bonaparte ! Until Saint Jean bridge was built in 1965, it was the only bridge over river Garonne in Bordeaux. It was filed as historical monument in december 17th, 2002.
