St. Andrews Bay Bridge

MY FATHER, ATWILL REED HUTCHINGS WAS THE SUPERINTENDENT FOR KANSAS CITY BRIDGE CO., FOR THIS PROJECT.

WE MOVED TO PANAMA CITY IN 1957 TO START THIS PROJECT.

WE LEFT PANAMA CITY WHEN IT WAS COMPLETED IN 1959.

THE OLD ORIGINAL BRIDGE WAS LEFT UP FOR PEOPLE TO FISH FROM.

THIS IS A PHOTO OF ATWILL REED HUTCHINGS

THANKS, ROBERT REED HUTCHINGS
