Iron Bridge, Chennai
One of the famous landmarks in Chennai, it is now known as Napier Bridge. I vaguely remember a time (80s and pre-IT 90s) when it was called the Iron Bridge. Why and when was it renamed as Napier Bridge?
This is one of the earliest structures to use RCC (re-inforced concrete). The design seems to be very popular, i have seen it in so many bridges, mostly in Tamil nadu.
