Bridge across the Tigris River, Baghdad, Iraq Featured Print

Bridge across the Tigris River, Baghdad, Iraq

A pontoon bridge across the River Tigris in Lower Baghdad, Iraq on a very windy day! It appears that preparations are being made for a celebration or festival as the bridge is adorned with rushes and strings of lights are being attached (precariously!) to poles. A postcard sent back to High Wycombe from a British soldier on active service in Mesopotamia during World War One. Date: circa 1915
