Bermuda’s new stamps celebrate bridges

Regional 22 May, 2020 Follow News

Bermuda has many historic bridges

Bermuda’s latest batch of commemorative stamps will highlight the island’s historic bridges. The stamp series, the first of 2020, will feature Watford Bridge, Flatts Bridge, the Bridge at Norwood and the Causeway.

Wayne Furbert, the Minister for the Cabinet Office, said: “Bermuda’s bridges are unique landmarks, which reflect the history and culture of our island. Our infrastructure, especially our roads and bridges played a vital role in the social development and economic growth for all Bermudians.

“For our 21 square miles, we have more than 40 bridges, and the BPO is pleased to offer this stamp series featuring four very striking images of some of Bermuda’s iconic bridges.”

While the Perot Post Office and the General Post Office letter floor remain closed, the stamps can be bought from sub-post offices around the island.

The original Watford Bridge, which connected Somerset Island to Watford Island, was first commissioned in 1903. It was replaced in 1957, which in turn was replaced by the current bridge in 1983.
