Edith Cavell bridge (3 o 5)

Edith Cavell bridge

This bridge on the Shotover River, near Queenstown, is an unofficial war memorial. When the concrete parabolic arch bridge was completed, an old miner, Jack Clark, suggested that it be named after Edith Cavell, a British nurse who had been executed in Brussels in 1915. The suggestion was not accepted, but Clark painted the name on the new structure anyway. By the time the paint wore off, the name had stuck and an informal war memorial had been created.
