UNRRA / Albania 3733 [Scanned Image - Gray Scale]
Photograph shows suspension bridge. Other title information: 'It has had a troubled history and holds on to life very tenuously even now. It was destroyed by the Italians when they held the town and wanted to keep the Partisans out and by the Partisans when they held the town and wanted to keep the Italians out. This happened so often that the bridge [was] usually in the river instead of over it and the fact that it is there every morning when they wake up now is the people's most vivid proof that war is over. 'We thought,' they said when they had seen it quivering under the jeep, 'that is was going to be destroyed once more--by UNRRA. That would have been too much.' Photo by Crooke (photographer's no.
