Some more GB Bridges. I love the sombre tones of the Palace of Westminster! The bridge just squeezes in at the back!

The Tarr Steps prehistoric bridge has got Matthews and Harrison at the bottom. I assume one of the names refers to the designer/artist but which is which?

The Tarr Steps and M4 Viaduct stamps were both designed by prolific GB stamp designer Jeffrey Matthews.
They were printed by Harrison & Sons on Chalk-Surfaced paper.

set to commemorate the Danube Conference of 1948, held in Belgrade.
btw. this bridge is over the Sava River, not the Danube.

My daughter was in a choir a few years ago that performed a musical documentary about the Stari Most bridge.
It was very emotional as this bridge symbolised the integration, division and subsequent reunification of the communities on either side and centres around the story of Mirsad Pasic, a famous diver.
I was unfortunate to have witnessed some of the effects of the war firsthand so the hope this performance gave was particularly poignant.

I was expecting a Mpeg :(
That must have been great to see and hear Anthony.

On a tangent, may I recommend your daughter
to a fantastic choral video
(if she is old enough) rated M I think
It was rated as my best film I saw in 2009
absolutely superb.
