Photographer's Note

An other view of the bridge Rion-Antirion. Other pictures 1 and 1
Some notes : In 1880, Harilaos Trikoupis became Prime Minister of Greece. Born in Messolonghi, one of the main cities on the North coast of the Corinth Gulf strait, he had the vision of a bridge joining the people from Achaia (Peloponnese) and Etoloakarnania (North Western Greece). The bridge project was discussed at the Greek parliament at the end of the 19th century. However such a project was not technically feasible until the late 20th century and it was one hundred years later that the Greek State decided to invite tenders for building a fixed link on the Corinth Gulf strait.
