ERIE - Genesee River Viaduct
Posted February 8, 2022, by Lueders Ellen (ellenlueders1957 [at] gmail [dot] com)

What great memories!

I lived in Houghton just up the river and passed under this amazing structure, several times a week til I was 17. Between this one and the bridge in Letchworth SP, I was able to soak up some amazing engineering & architectural landmarks!

Does anyone know where or who to contact to purchase a large print of one or two of these vintage pics?
