Late, but not after deadline. Here's my contribution: Laxbro bridge, not built recently. But it was actually in use till 1949, when traffic with car and horse-cartridges was forbidden and the bridge was declared a cultural heritage.

Interesting bridge, the stonework is awesome. What did they use to keep it together? Doesn't look like they used mortar - did they? The stones fit together so well!

Although im not "Technically" happy with this shot, under the circumstances that it was taken (driving while getting the camera out of the bag, readying it and holding it by windshield, taking it without using the viewfinder while still driving) I would say it came out ok.

So this is my entry. Enjoy

No mortar, the stones keep each other in place using only gravity. A fairly common technique for smaller bridges, but seldom this large.

I was wondering about that too. There were no Crazy Glue in the 40s huh?

Interesting and engaging shot

While there have been some great entries this month, I am wondering if some of them meet the subject criteria for the monthly challenge.

Just for fun -- Photographed today from a painting of the interior of a Canadian Cathedral. Put ina bit of persepctive to add to the dimensional effect - the original was straight up and down.

Thx for the information (see Silverstone's note below for more).
