Blue Bridge, where the Ouse meets the Foss.

Blue Bridge is the name of a bridge in York, England crossing the Foss just above its confluence with the River Ouse. The original bridge on the site was built in 1738, the current one being constructed in 1895.

Two Russian cannon captured during the Crimean War were once positioned at each end of Blue Bridge. The cannon were removed in 1941 to be scrapped and reused for the war effort.
