Great shot. You should post this to the Shelhorn Bridge page instead of just here in the comments.

I thought there was a corporate sponsorship behind it. I'll check with my wife and see if any of her co-workers who are local to the area can tell her anything. One of the guys used to fish and swim off of it as a kid, and he's one of those guys who knows everyone and everything about the area.

Yeah, that's pretty sad.

Yes, it's gone. If you select the satellite view and zoom in you can see the new bridge and the old bridge within a view of each other. The birds eye pics are still of the old bridge.

Ruth, these bridges were all painted in the red, white and blue scheme back in the 70's when the whole country was Bicentennial happy. I think it's just a tradition at this point more than anything.

We'll get right on that.

How much of a nudge would it take to make you to follow through on your threat?

Talk about a waste of bandwidth.

Posted June 25, 2015

What's your point?

Great. Now I have to watch "Stripes" again. ;-)

These are photos of the original bridge taken by the father of a friend around 1975.
