Notes

The Golden Gate Bridge was constructed just before this little dandy, foreshadowing the greater presence of suspension bridges built in the USA during the latter half of the 20th-century (e.g., Mackinac Bridge-Michigan, Verranzano Narrows-New York).

Description

This WPA-built, suspension walking bridge was constructed in 1938 to span the Flint River and join the two sides of then-new Richfield County Park. It is 80 years on, captured here in a vintage-look from March, 2019.
