I know the two starting bridges from own experience. That almost automatically means they are not very sepia. I am not that old, you know.
The first one is a French bridge. It is situated near Millau in the south of France, part of the A75 and it has been there since 2004.

The next one is a Canadian bridge. I never set foot on it but we saw it from the air when visiting friends in nearby Belleville.

Well, so much for colorful bridges, let's go back to the sepia era.

Wählt Liste 2
Translated this says: "Adolf Hitler creates labour and bread, Vote list 2."
Obviously social circumstances in Germany were very poor in those days. And Hitler made use of the bleak future staring in the face of many Germans. Promises for a better future and at same time blaming a.o. Jews for the situation they were in, made excellent elections.
Usually the largest party has the lowest sequence number. In January 1933 Hitler became Chancellor of Germany and his Nazi-party the absolute number 1. In combination with my mother's age there, my conclusion is that this photo dates from 1932. Little did these boys and girls know how the banner over their heads would influence their lives in less than 10 years time...
