Bridges 3

Last night I was meeting C in town after work for a kebab, and snapped a couple more pictures. Just with my pocket camera; I was travelling light as I was taking a lift home on the back of the bike.
The Ha'penny Bridge - so called because it was first built in 1816 to replace a fleet of ferry boats; the builder was allowed to charge a halfpenny toll for each person crossing. My recollections are that it used to be a dark green - must look in some old books!

Also Grattan Bridge - built in the 1750s and remodelled in 1872.
