Interesting this postcard was printed like a normal photograph and then the details given on the card were then printed onto the back of the photograph to produce the postcard

Click Here for further details on this bridge.

Thanks to Diarmid Smith for sharing his memories with ORAFs.

It was most nostalgic to receive a picture of Birchenough Bridge. I wonder how many can claim to have climbed over the top of the bridge?

I crossed it off my “bucket list” when I was 17. Climbed up the one side, then crawled over the cross bars at the top and went down the other side! Another bit of nostalgia is that I was with the late Duff Odendaal and Tom Herselman!

I can remember dropping an Austin dinkie over the side when I was about 6 years old and my dad paid an African two bob to go and retrieve it, I still have that dinkie today

Colonialists brought about the Gud and the bad. But my great thanks goes to the the late Soir Henry Boirchenough on his love for the Rhodesian people. May his soul rest in Peace.
