nice bridge, lol, compared to the previous bridge that was there, which i began crossing in 1964, right after i was born. as an older child, i remember the 3 hour drive from st louis area to that point, when dad pulled up to that levee, it seemed huge back then, he would stop and blow the horn, which always woke you if sleeping, and then we would have to cross the bridge. my sisters would scream and hated it. my dad, the late glenn "gabby" eddleman was born there, my grandfather, glen "pete" eddleman lived there until 1973.
i still visit the area and love the pictures. anyone interested in hearing more, well they called my dad "gabby", and this nut didn't fall far from the tree. firstname.lastname@example.org sparky
