Washday at the Nydeggbrücke


This shot is taken from the Nydeggbrücke at the head of Bern.

Nydeggbrücke, literally the 'nether corner bridge', is the main thoroughfare in and out of the lower old town.

Barges used to tie up at the smaller, lower bridge pictured here, bringing cheese and milk from the Alps. The entrance to the Schifflände, literally 'ship-landing', has been preserved and can be seen behind the tree.

Today was obviously wash-day for the family in the Nydegg bridgehouse!
