The first bridge must have been a beautiful bridge. The stonework is beautiful.
Beautiful pillars of the former bridge!Greetings from Germany
Very interesting to see only the beautiful stone pylons coming out of the water.
Back in the day a bridge was often a work of art, now a bridge merely gets you over the river. Imagine the work that went into building those stone supports. Thanks Diana for joining this week and I look forward more kiwi treasures.
Oh, I so love what was the first bridge,yet I love the curve of the new bridge, too.
I love stonework and the original bridge must have been so pretty. Nice shots!
This is a lovely post, wonderful old bridge.
Pretty stone work on the old bridge. Visiting from Tuesday's treasures...
What a fantastic piece of history! I'm glad to see it's still standing. (Sometimes they tear down the "old" when they put up the new, and the "new" is usually modern looking with no character to it.)
I really like the original stonework!
What beautiful old bridge pilings! They sure don't accent the beautiful in modern bridges. I suppose it's just too expensive.
This is part of the native section of the Christchurch botanical gardens but I am not sure that the palm in the centre is nat...
