Description - Harold's Bridge at Waltham (Essex) is said on the card caption to be "the oldest bridge in England" - This cannot be true as it claims a building date of 1060. The oldest bridge (to my knowledge) is Tarn Bridge on Exmoor (a clapper bridge) which has been dated to around 1000 AD. Before then the Romans were building stone arch bridges for hundreds of years
Date -  earlier than 1914 - The publisher has a Germanic name, and the printing was done in the Black Forest area of Germany, so it is unlikely to have been used in England after the start of WW1.
