The Pont Notre-Dame at the time of the Great Flood of January 1910, in which the Seine rose 8 m above the normal level.

The Pont Notre-Dame spans the great arm of the Seine and is regarded as the oldest bridge in Paris, though not in its present form. The old bridge of 1853 led to a large number of marine casualties and was therefore replaced in 1919 by a metal construction, which remains unchanged today.
