On May 21, 1947, the International Getúlio Vargas/Agustín P. Just Road/Railway Bridge over the Uruguay River was inaugurated by presidents Eurico Gaspar Dutra of Brazil and Juan Domingo Perón of Argentina, linking Uruguaiana, Brazil to the Argentine city of Paso de los Libres. At the time of its construction, the bridge was the greatest work of engineering in Latin America. Here is an image of a stamp depicting the International Bridge, printed by lithogravure, and issued by Argentina on May 21, 1947 to celebrate the bridge's opening, Scott No. 560, SG No. 773. The quotation in Spanish on the stamp, "Toso nos une, nada nos separa," translates as: "Unites us all, nothing separates us."

The Cal y Canto (aka Calicanto) was a stone bridge with eleven arches spanning the Mapocho river in the city of Santiago, Chile. Opened in 1779, the bridge became a symbol of the city and its commercial center. However, the bridge was ultimately deemed to be too large for its purpose, and it was demolished in 1888. Here is an image of an engraved stamp depicting the Cal y Canto Bridge, issued by Chile on April 30, 1970, Scott No. 390, plus a photo of the bridge in 1860.

Great Bridge Moskvoretsky


One of the main bridges in Moscow, Red Square extension - Large Moskvoretsky bridge appeared in its present form in 1938, but before ...



For a long time in Moscow did not build permanent bridges, and it was not in the craftsmanship, building materials or even in something: the constant threat of military attacks by the Tatars, who came from the south, where the river itself has long served as a natural barrier, made it impossible to put a permanent crossing . And in general in Russia, while the permanent bridge is almost not there.
Description of Sigismund Herberstein in Muscovy, which he did in the early 16th century, more like a disaster film of the crossings for the winter the river and marshes (the ambassador of the Emperor of Austria, traveled by local authorities and the population). What was the fate of the alien population which is counteracted, everyone knows.


When traveling in winter, as many cross the largest rivers in the summer is even more difficult.
Across the Moscow River had several fords, one of them - Crimean, so named because of the steppe nomads of the Crimea. Here's a view of the Crimean ford, with views of the Great Stone Bridge, we see in the picture Savrasov.





Therefore, the first bridge on the Moscow River has long made floating and arranged in low places, which would quickly remove them at risk of attack, ice and for the passage of vessels. Here is a "living bridge" from the related logs in a raft in existence since 1498, he was opposite the Water Gate of Kitay-town on the route linking the Tverskaya street from the Serpukhov and led to the south.
So this bridge in the reign of Peter the Great found a Dutch engraver, Peter Picard, in his engraving shows just two of the main Moscow Bridge: Stone and Moskvoretsky (right)



In 1789 was built, finally, permanent wooden pile bridge.
And in the 1829-1833 years. Engineer Peter Y. de Witte has upgraded both Moskvoretsky Bridge: Big across the Moscow River and through the Small Drainage Canal. For the Big Bridge, he built the stone pillars on which rested the wooden arch spans of 28 meters. Then in Moscow were built of stone embankments: Moskvoretskaya, Sofia, The Kremlin, Raushskaya. From the waterfront to the river and hills were gatherings for horses and carts. In order not to obstruct the river, they have deepened in the embankments.



It is this kind we see in the picture Bushebua Louis, written in the mid-19th century.



In 1870 the wooden arches were burned, and in 1872 - an engineer V.K.Shpeyrom installed metal spans.
They got the picture Korovin "Moskvoretsky Bridge", who wrote her out of the current window of the hotel "Baltschug"





wrote to the Kremlin and the bridge and Moskvoretsky Arkhip Kuindzhi, on a postcard of his film "Moscow. View of the Kremlin from Zamoskvorechye "



In the pictures and postcards of the early 20th century, we see a lot of buildings on the left bank of the river, but on the mark in 1959 near the Spassky Tower you can see the approaches to the bridge and the famous Vasilevsky descent, is empty, free from all the buildings specifically for the possibility of holding parades and demonstrations .
It is at its May 27, 1987 on an airplane, "Cessna" Mathias Rust landed, no one is hurt, except the entire leadership of the army of the USSR.

A modern concrete bridge across the Moscow River with a single span, built in 1938 as an engineer VS Kirilov and architect Shchusev (author of the mausoleum), while large-scale reconstruction of Moscow.



And on the Big Moskvoretskaya bridge, and on the Big Stone created panoramic site overlooking the Kremlin, and the river embankments. And the bridges themselves were so beautiful, and often fell on postage stamps.

I want to tell about the two paintings by Edvard Munch, unrelated to the bridges - is the famous "Scream" and a lyrical painting "Girl on the Bridge"
Edvar Munch - the famous Norwegian artist, impressionist



"Scream" (1894) a few paintings by Edvard Munch: screaming figure in the background of a blood-red sky.


Critics have found out where the artist found a landscape for his picture - a form of the eastern part of the Oslo Fjord from the hill Ekeberge in Oslo.



Munch created several versions of the "Scream", and a lithograph of this work.



Red sky may have been caused by a tremendous volcanic eruption of Krakatoa in 1883. Volcanic ash has colored the sky a reddish color in the eastern United States, Europe and Asia from November 1883 to February 1884.
It is believed that Munch saw some Peruvian mummies in Paris or Florence, and painted one of them.
The mummy of the Florence museum:



The painting "Girl on the Bridge" Munch painted in 1902 in the small town Asgardstrand, where he lived for a time in a house on the bay. The picture is full of warmth and tranquility.



There isn't bridge in Asgarstrande and now, the bridge is a pier, the only public place in the village. On the Internet I found a photo of this place



and made a comic collage



And the brand ksilogravyura reproduced in mirror image.
