Early iron bridges of south-western Germany 1844 to 1889 - Iron via Wood (part 1).
When imagining the first large imposing iron bridges built after the mid 19th century in Germany the first association is drawn to foundries on the rivers Rhine and Ruhr, such as Harkort, the Gutehoffnungshütte or MAN. But it is easily ignored that during the early phase of industrialisation ironworking factories were effectively operating also at other locations.
