Photographer's Note

Our next stop was Gazi Mihal Bridge ("Gazi Mihal Kprs"). "It once carried the main road from the center of Edirne towards the west. It marks the location of an earlier Roman bridge of which only a few stones remain. The earlier bridge was originally built by the Byzantine emperor Michael VIII (1259-1282) but was rebuilt early in the 15th century by the Ottoman frontier lord Gazi Mihal. In 1544, Ottoman sultan Suleiman the Magnificent (r. 1520-1566) added eight arches at its western end, which had originally eight arches. Sultan Mehmed III (r. 1595-1603) added a span with two arches, which is called the middle bridge." (Gleaned from Wikipedia)

The top frame is taken from the eastern end of the bridge looking west and the bottom frame is from the middle.
