So the scene in 1926 shows no sign of the rail line the bridge was supposed to carry, and I have never found any evidence it ever did--but it was built rather wide for the times. The same scene in 1937 shows the bridge completely compromised. I can only assume with the roadway trashed that is why the Singing Bridge was born.
The Singing Bridge under siege----floods from 1937,1948,1949,1952, and 1964.
Here are some shots of this thing receiving it's steel floor post '37 flood, early 70's by-pass and subsequent inglorious finale.
Glad to see this majestic old beast make the pages here. After 45 years, the Singing Bridge lives again. The utter heartbreak I felt as a 5 year old upon finding the broken form of this thing in the river led me to a lifelong hobby.
