Description

On the piers of the Pont Kitchener-Marchand are four aluminium sculptures representing the rivers Rhône and Saône.

We only could make photos of the statues on the north side (from the Vaporetto boat service), as far as can be seen with Google Streetview the two on the south side are identical with those on the north.
