The New Bridge
i hate "bad bolts bridge."
it looks like something ikea would design, and the quality is even worse.
here's to the death of the west.
looks alright to me, but I agree about the old bridges have more character. man, I love bridges. I just read a big thing about the construction of the Golden Gate bridge. those old iron workers were bad ass.
The Half Way to Hell Club was an exclusive club organized by the men who fell from the Golden Gate Bridge during its construction in 1936 and 1937 and were saved by the safety nets. One of the clubs earliest members was Iron Worker Al Zampa who fell into the safety nets in October 1936.[SUP][/SUP]
Al Zampa (1905–2000), as one of the club's first members and the last surviving member, became the unofficial spokesman for the club. According to Zampa when a man fell to his death from a bridge it was said "he's gone to hell." The men who fell and were saved by the nets were said to have fallen only "half way to hell."
Early News about man saved by the Nets.
Zampa goes on: "There were ten of us that fell into the nets those first few weeks. Four got hurt. I was one of them. We were in the hospital together. We formed the club right there in St. Luke's Hospital."[SUP][/SUP]
vacation curse claims the hss.
have you seen it up close? it belongs in thailand or malaysia....
nope, this is the first I've heard of it.
This is the bridge I had to deal with everyday for a few years, commuting into Montreal. It's literally falling apart (just like all the infrastructure in Montreal) and the new bridge won't be done for a decade. Although I do like it's style and I'm curious to see what the new one will look like.
there's something to be said for that old industrial blue-collar look. i love it. it speaks of a lost age.
Rip bay bridge. Hope this one holds up better in an earthquake.
