Photographie à Mersch? -- Photograph in Mersch?

Bonjour,
Je fais des recherches sur une photo d'un pont à Mersch, Luxembourg. Régiment de mon grand-père américain marcha sur elle en 1918 sur le chemin de la rivière du Rhin près de Coblence, Coblence aujourd'hui. Utilisation de Google satellite vue et tracer la vue photo je crois que le pont peut encore exister. Il ya une version plus récente, plus de pont debout sur ​​elle. Si quelqu'un surveiller ce forum vit à Mersch-vous de bien vouloir prendre un coup d'oeil et peut-être une photo de moi? Ma photographie originale et la vue par satellite de l'emplacement sont affichés à http://2nd-engineers.us/march.htm

Merci pour toute aide!

Hello,
I am researching a photograph of a bridge in Mersch, Luxembourg. My grandfather's American Regiment marched over it in 1918 on the way to the Rhine River near Coblenz, today Koblenz. Using Google satellite view and charting the photograph view I believe the bridge may still exist. There is a newer, larger bridge standing over it. If someone monitoring this message board lives in Mersch would you kindly take a look and perhaps a photograph for me? My original photograph and the satellite view of the location are posted at http://2nd-engineers.us/march.htm

Thank you for any help!

The second small bridge you see on the satellite image is of recent date: it is a small bridge of a bicycle trail.
The large bridge, which replaced the one that your ancestor crossed back in 1918 was constructed and inaugurated in 1957, as comes forth from an information brochure from the City of Mersch published in 1989. see attachment. At the same time the old stone bridge was destroyed.

Thank you very much for this information. I have been trying to learn if this bridge still exists for years. It is a little disappointing since I hoped to see it when I visit Mersch in the near future. I have edited my web page on the subject accordingly. There is now another photograph taken in Mersch during that time, if you have an interest.

Comments and information from anyone interested in this subject are always welcome.

Thank you again,

Under this link you will find two more pictures of the three Alzette bridges (automobile, railroad and bicycle)all located near each other in Mersch.

It is a public procurement notice regarding offers on the development of this area in Mersch, where some extensive terrain became available when an agricultural-industrial complex became vacant.
The upload links to the photos are at the bottom of the website under the heading "Téléchargements internes": Luftfoto1 and Luftfoto 2.
Enjoy.
