I'm back from my retreat and about to start looking for this new one. I just looked back at the mastodon one and realized that one problem was that the artist (or at least whoever posted the picture at the website) misspelled mastodon as mastadon. I meant to look under that spelling, just in case, but I didn't.

Ok, off to search!

Some sort of old railway bridge, or a spectator bridge for some sort of race, or even something to lift and transport goods across the water... no idea!! I can't find anything :(

Is it one of those weird pedestrian bridges? They have all sorts of them. Otherwise it could be a gate lock.

Germany, I guessed from the start. The rest, I have no idea! But I like Saphellae's ideas.

It looks like one of those treadmill bridges the allies built across the Rhine and associated rivers in WWII, but the vertical structures in Cara's pic, holding the bridge/vertical section in the air, set this one apart.
