In “Reflection & Flag”  of a few days ago there is a boat with a white cabin to be seen. This survived from the ship-bridge that was used to connect Zutphen to the west bank of the IJssel just after the war. The original bridge had been destroyed in WW II. The ship bridge was temporary and every time a riverboat passed a part of the bridge was sailed out of its row of boats, which had all had a part of the bridge-deck fastened on its hull.
The skipper had this photo of the shipbridge, that shows how it worked.
