|September 2016 (45° 45' 5.00" N 4° 49' 21.00" E) Pont Kitchener-Marchand|
The current bridge replaced a suspension bridge (The Pont Napoleon from 1847) that was damaged during WWII (see photo above) and rebuilt after the war. An even earlier timber bridge (The Pont Midi) was destroyed by riots in 1832, it was rebuilt, but it was destroyed by a flood in 1840. Kitchener and Marchand were British and French military officers during WWI.

Thanks! I feel the same way about you.
