Rainy View of Bridge Over French Creek



We were caching near Cambridge Springs and went for a friend's cache at this bridge. The bridge was built in 1893 and is one of the few remaining iron bridges. Its future is about as bright as the day's weather. Yet, it is a great looking bridge and made a nice subject for black and white. I had no intentions of making two photos of this subject, but the shot with the rain caught me while the view from the other end as Ali walks away shows off the iron-work on the bridge in its present gloomy state.

Wonderful pictures of the bridge. Why is its future gloomy? Is it going to be torn down?

The state of Pennsylvania has begun tearing down these old steel bridges rather than maintaining them. The have torn down two this summer, one in Warren PA and one west of Edinboro PA on Route 6. I expect this bridge will stand only until there is time and money to tear it down.
