My favorite bridge goes across the Mississippi River, Scott 293. Too bad its not structurally sound...

Here is an image of an airmail stamp depicting a bridge constructed with liana vines spanning the Cavally River in Lieupleu, designed and engraved by Pierre Gandon, and issued by Ivory Coast on December 4, 1965, Scott No. C30.

Land bridges are created by wind and water erosion.



See how the perfs on the upper left corner have been eaten away?

Here is an image of an airmail stamp depicting a slightly more conventional bridge: the Alexander III Bridge, and, in the background, the Petit Palais, Paris, designed and engraved by Pierre Gandon, and issued by France on June 13, 1949, Scott No. C28, Y&T No. PA28. Note the fine artistic touch of the swooping swallows, nicely balancing the stamp's design.

A query regarding bridges:

How is the height of a Bridge measured?
to the surface of the road/railway/aqueduct?
or to the top of the support pillars?

The query was raised, during observations
on a supposedly highest bridge in Jammu Kashmir.

BAYERN1kreuzer - Very nice! Would you please post close-ups of each PRC stamp, too?

The Pont Valentré is a fourteenth century six-span fortified stone arch bridge crossing the Lot River to the west of Cahors, France. Here is an image of a stamp depicting the bridge, designed and engraved by Charles Mazelin, and issued by France on October 15, 1955, Scott No. 777, Y&T No. 1039.

I haven't seen these very popular Scottish bridges: the Forth Road Bridge and the Forth Railway Bridge (on the background of the first stamp), close to Edimburgh.

BAYERN1kreuzer - Great images! Thanks for posting them. Also, the engraved Lu Ting bridge stamp is particularly dramatic and exciting.

Here is an image of a stamp with a subject that is by comparison quite mundane, but is nevertheless visually appealing: Mayombe Viaduct, designed by French-born Canadian graphic designer Gérard Mariscalchi, engraved by Jean Miermont, and issued by Congo on June 24, 1968, Scott No. 173.
