THANK YOU FOR THIS PICTURE WHICH REFRESHES MY MEMORY !!! ALTHOUGH THE FIRST BRIDGE IN THE WADI EL KUHUF WAS INDEED BUILT BY THE ITALIANS,THE STRUCTURE SHOWN ON YOUR PICTURE IS THE BRIDGE BUILT BY THE BRITISH IN CIRCA 1948 OR 1949 . I HAVE SOME PICTURES OF THE OPENING CEREMONY OF THIS BRIDGE BY EMIR IDRIS AND THE BRITISH REPRESENTATIVE AT THE TIME : DE CANDOLE.

Thanks a lot, Misson, for your comment. Please can you show me the pictures of the openingceremony of the bridge? It is funny but I could not find the historyfacts of the bridges in my travellerguides. They don't even mention the bridges.Incredibe! If you can give me more facts of the history of Wadi el Kuhuf (as you mention it!) I'll be very grateful.
