A decorative bridge, Peradeniya Campus, Sri Lanka.

Sir Ivor Jennings, took a lot of effort in designing the campus of the Peradeniya University, Ceylon, in the early 1950s. His concept was 'an Oxford University, on the banks of the Mahawely Ganga'. It was a beautiful site and the aesthetics of the choice, was superb. There were large lawns, foot-paths and nooks where romance could blossom. You see a wooden bridge across a stream in the campus in this photograph.
