Caption: Kintai Bridge. Hand-coloured 20th-century photogravure of one of the arches of Kintai Bridge, which spans the Nishiki River at Iwakuni, Yamaguchi Prefecture, southern Japan. This wooden bridge was built in 1673 in a series of five arches held up by stone pillars. After being rebuilt in 1674, it was maintained for 276 years until destroyed by a typhoon in 1950. It was rebuilt again in the same form in 1953. It spans a distance of 175 metres. This image was published circa 1910 in 'Sights and Scenes in Fair Japan', a collection of 50 photographs by Japanese photographer Kazumasa Ogawa (1860-1929).
