Dniestr Bridge, Mogilev-Podolski, 1941

Post by CNE503 » 24 May 2021 19:55

Hello,

Has anyone any picture or description of this bridge before July 1941?
I'm also interested in details about the Dniestr river in Mogilev-Podolski area (width, how high are the banks, etc.).

Thank you in advance.
Regards,

This German period map shows only a railroad bridge there (yellow circle).
Map on T314 R481 - 000868 has some kind of crossing drawn on it, in a different location, perhaps a German built pontoon bridge?
So it's hard to tell the exact location of a road bridge in 1941 (if it really was there...?).

These photos are not dated. A road bridge between Otaci (Ataki) and Mohyliv-Podilskyi.
Most likely post war. Although surroundings changed a lot, it seems to be exact spot where a current bridge is according to Google maps.
(Do not confuse it with a modern Unguri - Bronica bridge - 10km SE, which is also called Mohyliv-Podilskyi bridge!

And here you can find two nice photos of current railroad bridge in Mohyliv-Podilskyi.

GregSingh,

Thank you very much. Unfortunately, my copy of T314 R481 file 868 is not good enough to let me see anything...
Anyway, I think that the answer is: there was only one bridge on the Dniestr here on July 1941, and it was the railway one.

I'm inferring that the map you posted (thanks!) is not the map from T314/R481. What's the source of your map? I guess I'm asking whether there's some source of German period maps like this of which I'm unaware.

These 1:50000 (1km) Deutsche Heereskarte all have Library of Congress stamp on them.
They should be on that Polish maps server.
