Spanning the River Liffey in Dublin, the Ha’penny Bridge was created when the local ferry boat captain decided to build a bridge over the river rather than repair his boats. He charged a half a penny to cross which is how this bridge received it’s delightful name. Of course, this bridge and toll could only survive if the citizens of Dublin found them both “unobjectionable.” Luckily, they did so the bridge lives on today- attracting thousands of tourists each year.
