So ironic with the coca cola sign.
That sign belongs to the pub as well as the beer sign - the name of the pub is a bit ironic as well: "Zum alten Fritz" = At the Old Fritz' (Frederick the Great's nickname).

The above Roman bridge is in the Verzasca Valley.

The oldest bridge of northern France is Roman as well, but less spectacular:

It's the Pont de Domqueur, in Domqueur (16km east of Abbéville), part of the ancient chaussée Brunehaut (a Roman/medieval military road)

@Walter Hinteler,
One of the nicest (and best known) bridges in France was udes as a hospital by the British army during WWI (Château de Chenonceau, Chenonceaux, in the Indre-et-Loire département of the Loire Valley)

@ossobuco,
I don't want a border wall either in the U.S., I would rather have a welcome sign. Smile

Fort Knox Bucksport Maine (Was built and never used)
http://mainehistoricsites.files.wordpress.com/2010/01/fort-knox-barracks.jpg

I have been inside the dungeons of this fort.

I would have been a horrid place for Englishmen captured by the rebels...

http://www.bucksportmaine.gov/vertical/Sites/%7B1700581E-144E-4C5D-B026-79CCA6D1E656%7D/uploads/fall20fort20knox.jpg

Some of the holding cells had shallow walls with high ceilings that went onto far hidden passageways. Not sure how they could have kept prisoners in one place. Only adds to the mystique of the place.

Each cell had its breach... Maybe that is my take of the place. But I have been inside.

Sorry Chuck, that's not London Bridge. It's Tower Bridge. This is London Bridge, well the new one anyway.

This is the old one, currently in Arizona.

This is Charles Bridge in Prague, if you turn right at the bottom there's a fantastic puppet shop.
