The Humber Bridge in the UK

The Humber Bridge, near Kingston upon Hull, is a single-span suspension bridge, the 5th-largest of its type in the world.  It spans the Humber, the estuary formed by the rivers Trent and Ouse, between Barton-upon-Humber on the south bank and Hessle on the North bank.  The toll charge of £2.70 for cars and of £1.20 for motorcycles is a matter of dispute.  However, it should be conceded that the Humber Bridge is an architectural chef-d'oeuvre.

Thanks Nigel for the magical postcard and for the stamps too.  These WWF ones illustrate the Siberian tiger and the Polar bear.
