    OTD, that is one of the first bridges to get the lovers locks on it, I'm guessing the popularity started in the late 2007-09 time frame. Couples would write something on a padlock then lock it to the bridge and throw the key into the river. The practice is spreading to other bridges around Europe I have noticed.

    I found a picture from 4 years ago that shows the contrast, I think the city has to cut them all off from time to time. Becomes too heavy and dangerous.

    Bridge last week.

    Same Bridge a few years ago.

    LOL, hadn't heard of that before PT. Wonder how long before "Lovers Locks" make their debut in the states (-:
