I bought a painting of a woman called Isabella of the Cape Fear. It is from the late 1800's.? I am researching the provenance of this painting if you can assist. Thanks.
This is the bridge that was at the beginning of the movie Maximum Overdrive by Stephen King
Who and why was the bridge named Isabel Holmes Bridge. Trying to settle a debate.
There is really nothing historic about this structure and it is actually quite ugly when you look at it. However, the Warren trusses used as floor beams are somewhat interesting. It replaced a 1920s bascule bridge that had deck truss approaches.
