The Swiss post office issued a very special image of the Chinese bridge by putting it in Lake Geneva next to Chillon Castle. The bridge is a bit in the fog, but the mirror image is so clear that you can even count the 24 railing posts. A large stamp (4.5 x 4.5 cm).

Construction on the Golden Gate Bridge was begun in January 1933 and completed in 1937. Two years later San Francisco hosted the international exposition and celebrated the completion of Golden Gate and Oakland bridges at the same tine. El Salvador issued a set of stamps for the occasion. (A postcard of that year I found on the web.)

Monks' Bridge, or Crossag - the little crossing, was built by the monks of Rushen Abbey, over the small river Silverburn, Isle of Man, in 1350. The painting by J. H. Nicholson (1911-1988), a Manx painter, was chosen for the 1975 stamp. The decorative frame is a traditional design by Nicholson. Note the Manx coat of arms.

In 2002 a painting of the Monks' Bridge was again featured on a stamp. The Manx-born artist Toni Onley studied with Nicholson for a few years before emigrating to Canada. The bridge is one in a set of five of his works. The Isle of Man has been issuing its own stamps since 1973.

The old stone bridge across the Moselle at Remich Luxembourg painted by Nico Klopp (1894-1930) who lived in the area. I'm not sure if the bridge is still there, but I found an old postcard of it on the web. On the other side of the river lies the small town of Nennig; the region is known for its fine wines.

Tividar Csotvary-Kosztka (1853-1919) painted a storm scene at the Great Hortobagy bridge which crosses the river of the same name. He included a herd of those famous white cattle, a Hungarian herd dog and even riders hurrying home on the bridge. The bridge was built in 1833 and is also known as the nine-arched bridge. Hortobagy is now a national park and since 1999 a World Heritage landscape. (stamp 1973)


(Alexy, Thanks for the info! I have traveled the area and couldn't remember any old stone bridge. It probably didn't survive the war. I did, however, cross the Hortobagy bridge many years ago and also saw the white cattle. K.)

In 1907 Giovanni Giacometti (1868-1933), Swiss artist, painted the stone 'Bridge in the Sun' at Stampa in the Bregaglia valley close to the border to Italy. It crosses the river Mera and is still in use. Stampa was the home town of the Giacometti family; there is a Giacometti museum at the bridge.

The Karl Theodor Bridge, made of local red sandstone, crossing the river Neckar in Heidelberg has already appeared here, but I didn't find this version of 1996. The story of the monkey with the mirror on the bridge goes back to the 15th century. The new one, created in bronze by G. Rumpf, has been keeping Karl Theodor company there since 1979.

Hello Agmasd, I have tried to find more information about the stamp and the bridge of Lebanon, but it is not so easy. My stamp of 4p was issued in 1930, yours of 5p in 1940. The motif "The old Bridge over the Dog River" stayed the same until 1950. It is a sandstone bridge from the time of Sultan Selim but I found only the old post card from 1914 on the web, so I don't know if it is still standing. There is an interesting legend to go with the name Dog for the river. Do you have any more info?
