This issue marks the 50th anniversary of the major engineering work that is now the 25th of April Bridge.

The 25 de Abril Bridge is a suspension bridge connecting the city of Lisbon, capital of Portugal, to the municipality of Almada on the south bank of the Tejo river. It was inaugurated on August 6, 1966, and a train platform was added in 1999. Because it is a suspension bridge and has similar coloring, it is often compared to the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. The bridge was built by the American Bridge Company, which also constructed the San Francisco–Oakland Bay Bridge, but not the Golden Gate. The upper deck carries six car lanes, while the lower deck carries two train tracks. Until 1974, the bridge was named Salazar Bridge. The name "25 de Abril" commemorates the 1971 Carnation Revolution.
