It was taken from one extremity of the Pont de la Quarantaine, the railroad bridge which connected the Paris-Lyon line with the Perrache Station. Visible in the middle-ground is the Pont du Midi, a suspension bridge; in the background are the Pont d'Ainay and the tower of the church of Saint-Georges. [MD]
