Pont Alexandre III
It's a classic, but I'll never be bored with it... It's the Alexander 3rd bridge, a bridge that was built between 1896 and 1900. Tsar Alexander II of Russia (the son of Tsar Alexander III to which it was dedicated) laid the foundation stone in October 1896. It was inaugurated, like many other structures nearby, in 1900 for the World’s Fair. I had dinner on the left bank tonight and I took this photo on my way back home (to the right bank!), about 30 minutes ago.
