EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases the magnificent Band-e Kaisar, also known as Valerians Bridge, located in Shustar, Iran. The bridge and dam are believed to have been constructed by captive Roman soldiers under the rule of Sassanian Shah Shapur I after his victory over the Roman Emperor. Dating back to ancient times, this engineering marvel served as an overflow dam for the River Karun. The Band-e Kaisar is not only a testament to incredible architectural prowess but also holds great historical significance. It forms an integral part of the Shushtar Historical Hydraulic System, which has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This recognition highlights its importance in preserving human ingenuity and cultural heritage. In this aerial view captured during the 1950s by Historic England Archive's Aerofilms Collection, one can truly appreciate the grandeur of this Persian masterpiece. The bridge gracefully spans across the river while showcasing intricate details that reflect both Persian and Roman influences. As we gaze upon this image, we are transported back in time to witness how civilizations collaborated and left their mark on history through remarkable feats of engineering. This photograph serves as a reminder of our shared past and encourages us to cherish these invaluable remnants from antiquity that continue to inspire awe and admiration today.
