GtC Of Yore - Old photos/pictures

Just got an idea about guessing cities based on old images. I've ran through some of the pages here and haven't seen any similar specific thread, so I'm opening this one. Let's check your history knowledge!

There are no strict rules except the general max. 3 guesses in row; after guessing right anyone can post another image otherwise I will.
In order to avoid confusions it is suggested to guess existing countries within their current borders.
And don't forget, the older the better!

Point system:
Country: 1
City: 4
City before country guessed: 7
For the exact location - street/building u get up to extra 2 points*



¡Let the game begin!

Of course It's the old Elisabeth bridge destroyed in WW2. There are some intentions for its reconstruction though, hope they'll carry it out.

Morocco was the closest so far, but you're on the wrong continent.

You were much closer before... It's coastal town in the subregion of Greater Porto.
