This was the first bridge in India, erected by Arthur Hoare of John Fleming & Co, Bombay and its fate is unknown.  The illustration shows a very elegant bridge in ornamental parkland and it may have survived.  The plate is that of John Fleming & Co rather than Harper, which may mean that further details may not come that way of this website.

The lack of information about this bridge's whereabouts means it is also listed among the missing bridges.
