Further Information: The Pont aux Anglais is the nearer, arched bridge. It was originally opened in 1847. After a couple of partial rebuilds it was decided (in 1912) to build a new bridge. It was severely damaged in 1940 and does not exist today.  The higher structure at the back is a 'through steel truss' railway bridge across the River Seine from Sotteville to Bonsecours (both in the Rouen area). It was was opened in 1913. In 1944 it was partially destoyed by the Allies in order to halt the German Army advance.  The bell tents of the British Army are visible to the right. It is not known when the wording on the back was written, or how much fact is in it. Click this link >>> for further reading - Another copy of the same card is available with an un-written back 4.50
