I was poking through the remnants of Daniel Alward's legendary (and long-lost) bridge website on the Internet Archive, and figured it wouldn't hurt to add some of the highlights as time allows. Sadly the Internet Archive only saved a tiny fraction of his photos, mostly in ultra-low resolution, due to the Javascript that ran most of his website, and Daniel Alward himself disappeared as completely as the bridges on his "Disappearing Bridges" website.
