Back in time..

 

Like most people I find old black and white photos captivating. From architecture to dress style and everything in between! You have seen the heritage listed Horseshoe Bridge built in 1904 here before, when it was built it was the main pass over from the city to Northbridge, with the new development of Yagan Square this is no longer the case. The last time I was in the city the old photo here was inserted into one of the under arches. Despite searching I couldn't find when it might have been taken but.. if you pull it in you will see soldiers either going off to or returning from I'm guessing the First World War between 1914-1918 definitely not the Second World War, the clothes are all wrong. Is it just me who finds these old images fascinating? I'm not sure if the link will work but have a look HERE to see horse drawn carriages going across the bridge instead of cars, looove it! Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe..

    Looking at old photos, especially B & W, is quite a nice way to spend your time and take a step back in history.

  7. Hello Grace,
    Very nice that this old bridge with a large history has remained intact.
    So special with the countered. Funny with the old picture on the wall.
    Nice to see the old picture of your link.

    Here in city Rotterdam we have a little bit the same. An old railway bridge and station through the city. The nostalgic spaces underneath have now become beautiful catering establishments. A nice place to go for a drink or meal.

  13. Love that photo, Grace and weee the bridge looks so spacious with only those few horse carriers.
    Last time on my last day Ingo stayed home and I strolled through Yagan Square by myself.
    Sometimes I like to say my good-bye like that. And now I´m homesick.

    Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR.
