Your Sunday Boring Postcard from Michael5000

the world's longest bridge (23.83 miles), connecting New Orleans with the highlands to the north.  It was completed in 1956, at a cost of 51 million dollars, as part of the Greater New Orleans Expressway System.  Eight miles of the bridge are out of sight of land.

Provenance: Purchased at a postcard dork trade show, April 2011.
