Nah, all bridges should be posted here! Interesting bridges, indeed. That foot bridges is actually pretty cool. Quite scary too...

I like how the San Juanico bridge curves.:)

does Jones really look like that? Looks quite grand. I guess its age, poor maintenence and pollution made it less attractive.

Well, Jones Bridge as pictured in that postcard was destroyed during World War II. I believe the statues that you see on the Manila Bay side of the bridge can be found somewhere in Intramuros.l

that fuente españa is beautiful. why is it replaced by jones? was it destroyed by the war? did it finally collapsed because it is so ancient? or was it replaced because it will not be able to contain newer vehicles heavier than kalesas? or the government was so rich and it had nothing to do with the money so they decided to put up another bridge?
