BRIDGE: "structure spanning and providing passage over a gap or barrier, such as a river, chasm or roadway."

This online exhibition on Luminous-Lint includes photographs from a vast variety of sources to provide an overview of bridge photography. It includes classic views as well as rarely seen photographs of bridges under construction. If you have further examples in your collection please let me know and I'm particularly interested in sets showing a sequence of photographs of a single bridge or building at different phases of construction.
