Vignes Street Bridge
Posted January 23, 2008, by David Kimbrough (kimbrough-photol [at] charter [dot] net)

Attached is a photograph of the Vignes Street bridge. Vignes actually goes down, under the incoming rails to Union Station for passager trains (Amtrak), commuter trains (Metrolink), and light rail (Gold Line)which can be seen in the upper right. The street is named after the man who introduced French style commerical wine production to California - Vin-yeah - whose name appropriately means vines. However the street is universally called Vig-Ness.
