A picture out of my archive, 2015

History of the small bridge in foreground:

However, the first mention of the Meebrug dates from 1290. The current name is only for the first used in 1440. This bridge, just like the nearby Peerdenbrug,( Horsesbridges ) early an important connecting function between downtown and the adjacent suburb, called the "Braamberg "because the latter shortly before 1246 is attached to the inner city. In 1390 the original wooden bridge was replaced by a stone copy built by the famous Bruges bridge builder Jan van Oudenaarde († 1412). The Meebrug is a simple arch bridge with cobbled pavement. The outer facings consist of regularly cut blocks Brabantse white stone in combination with blue for the keystones of the arches and the wrappers. The parapets on the west side and the entire east side of the bridge are made of brick.

I hope you like it.
