was in paris for my great grandmother's 101st bday and decided to visit this bridge. apparently randall has discovered a mystery about it?
This is not the original bridge at this location. Does anyone know where the current bridge originally came from? It is dated 1928 and the bridge built before at this location was constructed in late 1929. Help!!!
On February 2008 my wife and I visited, photographed, and studied this bridge. This is not the original location for this bridge. Because of the low water we were able to locate the original piers in low water underneath the current bridge. The broken plaques are due to people trying to steal them. Further research to follow on this bridge and what was there before it.
A few updated photos taken on 9-7-07. The builders plates on either end have started to crack since the AHTD photos were taken in 03. Won't be long before they shatter and fall into the creek piece by piece.
