EDITORS COMMENTS
Maude Bridge, Baghdad, Iraq (circa 1930) This evocative photograph captures the Maude Bridge in Baghdad, Iraq, as it looked in the 1930s. Named after Sir Frederick Stanley Maude, the British military commander who oversaw the capture of Baghdad during World War I, the bridge was completed in 1918 as a pontoon bridge across the Tigris River. The image presents a serene scene of daily life in the Iraqi capital during the 1930s. People can be seen crossing the bridge on foot, some carrying goods on their backs or in baskets, while others ride bicycles or horse-drawn carts. The Tigris River flows calmly beneath the bridge, reflecting the sun's rays and adding to the tranquil atmosphere. The Maude Bridge was an essential connection between the eastern and western parts of Baghdad, allowing for the movement of people and goods across the river. Its construction marked a significant milestone in the development of the city, which had been under British rule since the end of World War I. This photograph offers a glimpse into the past, providing a visual record of life in Baghdad during a time of relative peace and prosperity. The bridge, with its simple yet elegant design, stands as a testament to the ingenuity and engineering skills of the time, as well as the resilience and adaptability of the Iraqi people.
