Weekly Photo Challenge: Bridge

The Lowthorp Bridge in Clinton NJ, raised in 1870, is of special significance because of its early date and unique construction. Very few of its type, made with a combination of cast and wrought iron, now survive in America.

Iron Swing Bridge built in 1889, replacing the original wood span erected in 1745 that General George Washington used to cross the river in 1776 during the Revolutionary war. Right in my home town.

Timber Arch Suspension Bridge

Walkway Over the Hudson.  steel cantilever bridge spanning the Hudson River between Poughkeepsie, New York, on the east bank and Highland, New York, on the west bank. Built as a double track railroad bridge, it was completed on January 1, 1889. It became a pedestrian walkway bridge in 2009.

  2. One of the many advantages of living in a part of the country with lots of water, is the many bridges one encounters. Great selection:)
    I like the timber arch suspension bridge. Wooden bridges are becoming a rarity.

  3. We obviously hang out at the same places 🙂 Almost posted exact picture of the bridge in Clinton and Walkway Over the Hudson. I want to go back there. Maybe one of these days we’ll bump into each other with cameras in hand 🙂
