Porto-bridge

 

The Ponte Dom Luis 1 - not by Eiffel, as is often thought, but by a disciple of his, Théophile Seyrig.  Along with Sunday morning anglers - I didn't see any fish!

so people catch fish with that many of them fishing in one spot ?
Tom Wilson: I suspect that it is more in the way of a social club smile
What a great shot - the bridge is beautiful, and having the fishermen is extra!
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Elizabeth.

Le pont est bien dans le style de Eiffel.
Tom Wilson: Oui, on voit pourquoi on l'attribue souvent à Eiffel.

That river crossing must have been quite a challenge, but an important one, which they achieved successfully.
Tom Wilson: Yes, the land rises very quickly from the river on both sides.
That's a very impressive bridge.
Tom Wilson: A walk across the top gives some splendid views.
A handsome bridge. I reckon the anglers are just waiting for the pubs to open
Tom Wilson: Yes, I reckon it's just a social club smile

An elegant bridge - I like the row of anglers, hopefully they are successful.
Tom Wilson: I watched these and others for some time and never saw a fish caught smile

i do like the two tiered bridge, Tom. a fantastic view. i see many such anglers in Singapore waters too and do not get the impression that they are more successful!grin
Tom Wilson: Yes, I think they just meet to chat smile

I can see the Eiffel influence especially in the arched steelwork. I think the angling is just an excuse for me to chat.
Tom Wilson: Yes - as I've said to others, a social club really smile
