A bridge over time
The photo isn’t so much a throwback as its subject. Dublin’s iconic Ha’penny Bridge is now two hundred years old. Opened in May, 1816, the bridge replaced a ferry boat that would take passengers across the River Liffey for half a penny, or a ha’penny. The toll was continued in the bridge’s first century, but today the walk over the bridge is free for the estimated 30,000 pedestrians who use it daily.
