The Rolling Bridge, Saint-Malo
This “Bridge” has always fascinated me. It was pulled by chains along the sea bed on what looks like very fragile legs. I wouldn’t like to have been on it on a stormy day. Here the tide is out so that you can see the entire workings of the bridge which connected Saint-Malo to Saint-Servin from 1873 until 1922. The bridge was closed after being hit by the Norwegian ship, Brawn.
Reminds me of the inventions of W. Heath Robinson
