Photographer's Note

On the first day in Base I had wonderful weather. It was very warm and the people were enjoying the sun. On the other side of Rhein you can spot many people sitting on the stairs by the river. behind the shoulder of the girl on the right you can see Helvetia from my other post.

The bridge you see here is the Mittlere Brücke. Opened in 1226, it is one of the oldest Rhine crossings between Lake Constance and the North Sea.The Mittlere Brücke was initially used for local traffic, in conjunction with the development of the route over the Gotthard Pass as an international trade route, in the 14th century it gained significance as a crossing over the Rhine for international trade. With the advent of electric trams, the old bridge had to make way for the new Mittlere Brücke in 1905. A copy of the old bridge chapel, the so-called “Käppelijoch”, where in the Middle Ages convicted criminals were sentenced to death, was erected as a reminder of the original construction.
There has been some pictures with small talk theme. It is my contribution. Two pigeons, two girls and two guys, and the man with a bottle .
