I have a friend who is a postcard dealer and she gave me this card a few years ago. I've never seen it anywhere else and thought that perhaps someone else would find it interesting so I've posted it (both sides)

As interesting as the flood image to me is just the pre-paddock bridge. Though I am not an engineer, by looking at it I suspect this bridge could not handle the loads of today. I'm not sure my mother-in-law could even walk across that bridge without it collapsing, much less drive a big truck across it.
