Very impressive what was made of iron to last all these years.
Whenever you have a chance to get to Ironbridge visit the

COALBROOKDALE MUSEUM OF IRON

and see what our ancestors were able to create out of this material. On show there are even simple things for everyday use that lasted a long time and did not end up in the oceans.

The Blists Hill Open air museum a few miles away is also well worth a visit if you want to pretend you’re in a Victorian English town.

The iron bridge at, er, Ironbridge in Shropshire (one of the cradles of the Industrial Revolution).
View attachment 244217
Here’s a couple more showing the River Severn underneath and the year of construction (1779 if I read my Latin numbers correctly).

Thanks, Martin.
I know Blist´s Hill. Spent a few hours there to gather some knowledge about living and working in 19th century society.
It was quite elucidating as I like to read novels written at that time and now I can refer to some "real" images

This is the town next to the village where I grew up and went to high school.
First sets are all rather new bridges. The last one dates from the middle ages. The river was used as part of the defenses of the castle and town.
Situated at the banks of a river that flows to Ghent and from there as the stream Scheldt to Antwerp, settlement here is documented from the earliest times of the Roman occupation.
(no written records before that)

A strange experience to go back as a tourist some 40 years later :)

PS these are all with the Nikkor 45mm f/2.8 Ai-P.
