Le Pont Alexandre III
Inauguré pour l’Exposition universelle de Paris en 1902, la première pierre fut posée par le tsar Nicolas II de Russie en 1896, et était destiné à symboliser l’amitié franco-russe, instaurée par la signature de l’alliance conclue en 1891 entre son père, le tsar Alexandre III (1845-1894) et le président de la République française Sadi Carnot. La construction de cet ouvrage d’art fut confiée aux ingénieurs Jean Résal et Amédée Alby, ainsi qu’aux architectes Cassien-Bernard et Gaston Cousin. Sur la colonne, rive droite en aval, fut gravée cette inscription : « Le 14 avril 1900, Émile Loubet président de la République Française a ouvert l’exposition universelle et inauguré le pont Alexandre III ».

———————————————————————————————–
The bridge, with its exuberant Art Nouveau lamps, cherubs, nymphs and winged horses at either end, was built between 1896 and 1900. It is named after Tsar Alexander III, who had concluded the Franco-Russian Alliance in 1892. His son Nicholas II laid the foundation stone in October 1896. The style of the bridge reflects that of the Grand Palais, to which it leads on the right bank.
The construction of the bridge is a marvel of 19th century engineering, consisting of a six-metre high single span steel arch. The design, by the architects Joseph Cassien-Bernard and Gaston Cousin, was subject to strict controls that prevented the bridge from obscuring the view of the Champs-Élysées or the Invalides. The bridge was built by the engineers Jean Résal and Amédée d’Alby and inaugurated in 1900 for the Universal Exhibition (as were the nearby Grand Palais and Petit Palais). The Pont Alexandre III is classified as a historical monument.
