Tennision Bridge
Posted June 15, 2019, by Maunsel White (maunsel [dot] white [at] mchsi [dot] com)

The Yacht Club Bridge was not this one. It crossed the entrance to the Yacht Club Pen (harbor) that opened into the New Basin Canal and was on Pontchartrain Blvd. at the Southeast corner of West End Park. The boats had to go through this bridge in order to get in and out of the yacht harbor from the canal.
