In all the billiards and snooker I have watched,
never seen the one finger bridge before.

I spend an inordinate amount of time on the National Film Board of Canada website, and this short film is one of the ones I watched the other night. It's about Kahnawake Mohawk from Quebec who work on high-rises in New York City, and deals a bit with their history of such ironwork, including the Quebec Bridge (the easternmost bridge crossing the St. Lawrence River). The bridge collapsed twice during construction, killing a total of 89 people, including a number of Kahnawake.

Some horrifying (for me) footage of these men jumping around way up on spindly structures with a thousand pounds of steel swinging around in the air. Yeesh, I'll stay on the ground, thanks.

Bridge on Germany 2003 stamp.

Before all Briefzentren took over service, in certain Regions Briefregionen were introduced. These were places where mail was collected and sent to the next Briefzentrum. Right now, AFAIK these Briefregionen do not exist any more, although the cancels were still used some time after the Briefregionen were closed.

There are much more Briefzentrum cancellations than Briefregion cancellations, so it is no wonder they are not that easy to find.

= = = = =
Still working on what briefzentrum is.
