Ok I'm squeezing this in between trying to sell my old house and getting ready to visit Pam. Actually I might be procrastinating. I have to pay bills.

Mason Bridge, over the Big Piney River, outside Licking, Mo. It used to be hiway 32, which was moved upriver a few hundred yards. The bridge has been closed for years.


The plaque on the bridge can just be seen in the other picture, on the upper left girders.

My hometown of Rotterdam, being a port and river city, is rich as bridges go... here's two, the newest Erasmus bridge (or "swan" as it is nicknamed) and an old railway bridge called "De Hef" (which is no longer in use) in the background, brought closer together by the telelens.



And here's the bridge closest to the actual place I live, connecting the island I live on with the next island, over the river Maas. It is not the best of photo's but if you look closely you will see (just left of the bridge on the opposite shore) the portal of the original, first bridge dating back to 1903 when it was a turning bridge that was changed to a portal bridge in 1932/1933 and which was replaced by the current bridge in 1978. They left the old cast iron portals standing on both shore in rememberance:

Lovely collection of bridges! My favorites are Blondmom's 2nd one and Draco's first.

Here are my contributions:


Railway bridge near Albany, taken when I was there for Albacon


Bridge over Deception Pass in the greater Seattle Area, taken on my recent vacation there.
