Description

Lithograph by J B J Constant after an original drawing by V Philippe, titled; 'Vue du Pont Suspendu sur la Dordogne devant Cubzac'. This bridge was designed by Marie Fortune de Verges and built over the lower reaches of the Dordogne in the late 1830s. After damage caused by a severe storm in 1869, the superstructure of the bridge was demolished, the piers were reinforced and a new wrought-iron girder bridge designed by Gustave Eiffel was erected in 1883.
