The Zhongshan Bridge, or the Yellow River Iron Bridge, is located at the northern part of downtown Lanzhou. Dubbed "the First Bridge across the Yellow River," it has become one of the city's landmarks. Before its construction, there was a bateau bridge named Zhenyuan Bridge, which had been built in 1398. In 1907, engineers from Belgium, Germany and the U.S., together with local workers, jointly built the sturdy and durable iron bridge. In honor of Sun Yat-sen (1866-1925), a great Chinese revolutionary, the bridge was renamed Zhongshan Bridge in 1942 and has witnessed the vicissitudes along the Yellow River over the past century.
