The Demise of the 10th Avenue Bridge

In response to the previous post on Charles Tenney’s photos of Highland Avenue and the 10th Avenue Bridge, MaryLynn Pulscher sent her favorite photo of the 10th Avenue Bridge. It’s a fascinating bit of history itself. We don’t know the origin of the photo but believe it’s from a newspaper. If anyone knows who took it or where it was published, please let us know so we can give proper attribution.

    The Historical Society has several photos of the “Lower Bridge” (aka Tenth Avenue South aka 6th Avenue SE), but apparently not this one. Be sure to use “Tenth Avenue” when searching their collection:
