Silver River Bridges (1903)
The old road between George and Knysna has been in use since the early 19th century. This is a picturesque gravel road meandering through the indigenous Southern Cape forests. In 1903 & 1904 respectively the timber bridges over the Kaaiman's and Silver rivers were replaced by stone bridges. The section of road closest to George was tarred and used as an alternative route to the N2 while that road was upgraded. It's amazing to think that this small road was the main route between Knysna & George in modern times.
