The Ha'penny Bridge
City: Dublin State: N/A Country: Ireland
This is the best known of Dublin's bridges.The elegant metal pedestrian bridge spanning the Liffey between Merchants' Arch and Liffey Street is one of Dublin's best known landmarks. Erected in 1816, it was among the earliest cast-iron structures of its kind, and was named Wellington Bridge. Although the name of the bridge has been changed many times, this was always the name it was given by the locals and eventually officially named. The name comes from the fact that it used to cost one half penny in old English money to cross the bridge. The toll was eventually taken away but the name still persists.
