Weekly Photo Challenge: Grand


This week’s Photo Challenge theme is: Grand

John Frost Bridge: This famous (WWII )bridge in Arnhem (NL) was named after the British lieutenant colonel John Dutton Frost. Frost was the commander of the troops that tried to conquer the bridge during the 2nd world war. Also famous because of the movie “A bridge too far” by Richard Attenborough featuring a.o Sean Connery, Michael Caine and Laurence Olivier. However, strangely enough, the movie was shot in Deventer (a half an hour drive from Arnhem), so you don’t see this one in the film. (It probably didn’t look old enough :))
