Tarvastu Bridge, Viljandi, Estonia

Tuula in Tampere, Finland sends this beautiful reproduction of a vintage Estonian card, showing the Tarvastu Bridge, near the city of Viljandi. I suspect that the border around the picture was embossed on the original, but this modern reproduction is not.

This scene is very reminiscent of scenes near my own home; there are a great many places over Lake Lanier where the only sign of man’s presence is a bridge like this one. Ironically, Lake Lanier is itself man-made.

    It says: “Tarwastu kõikuw sild”, which means “Tarvastu swinging bridge” or “swinging bridge of Tarvastu” (“w” is archaic for “v”). Beautiful card!
