Old bridges: Train bridges. Footbridges. Vehicle bridges. Steel bridges. Iron bridges. Wood bridges. Stone bridges. There’s something fascinating about them, don’t you think? Whether still in active use, aging out of operation, or completely abandoned, they all have stories to tell. They all represent years of memories, generations of lives traveling through time. And if you let them, they’ll capture your imagination, every one.
