Title

Cast Iron Bridge - Spanish Town

Description

A view of the historic cast iron bridge, contructed in 1801 in Spanish Town, St. Catherine. The image was taken when Jamaica was experiencing a severe drought and this is evidenced by the limited amount of water in the Rio Cobre River that runs beneath the bridge.
