Whitstable, England

Postmarked Faversham, Kent, and dated 5 September 1965.

The oldest railway bridge in the world, Whitstable. PT4706.

This bridge, on the Canterbury to Whitstable Railway which may have been the first passenger railway in the world, was demolished in 1971 to make way for cars.  It is thought that the last train crossed it in 1953 after the floods on the east coast.
