The city of Suzhou has a long history and was the capital of Wu state during the Spring and Autumn period (between 771 and 403 BC). There are still many water channels in the old quarter of this city. So I often crossed the bridge during walking around. All bridges spanned over the channels were arched because ships had to go under them.
Once these water channels were used for transport. Yet they are not used for that purpose these days. They are just a part of the landscape. And they become blockades against strolling about.
