Rickety Bridge

At first look I was drawn to the this  quaint, pastoral scene and the simplicity of the bridge’s construction.  Then I had to laugh because the second man is waiting for the first to cross before going further.  It appears too much weight might collapse this rickety-looking bridge.

I haven’t seen how many early bridges were constructed but I have to think if they were anything like this, they created loads of  gephyrophobiacs!
