This famous Dublin bridge is noted for its amazingly slender cast iron construction.
Bob Dover provided the following comments:
This is the most iconic, landmark bridge serving as a readily recognizable symbol of the city of Dublin. The deck is curved upward, along with the very high arch, and has ornate white iron lampposts suspended above the heads of pedestrians. The bridge is located in the very center of the tourist area of Dublin, the Temple Bar, so is overrun with tourist traffic all day and night. A lot of this traffic is to get from one tourist area to another, but a large number of people come just to see the bridge. In the 1990s, the bridge got so crowded that a new pedestrian bridge, Millennium Bridge, was built adjacent, just to take the pressure off.
