This bridge was designed in 1880 by John Bear and built a year later by John and his brother Benjamin. This is the only remaining covered bridge in Ontario.
Nicely captured Piadera and thanks for the useful information too. Ciao nick
Thank you ever so much Nick !
Hi Bruce, It was a winter sunset. What I like about this bridge is the builder. John Bear had experience in building local barns, but the West Montrose bridge was his first bridge and still remaining. He must have made it with passion...
Hi Zekinha, thank you so much for the kind words. Greeting from Canada.
Extraordinary bridge, and also interesting name? is that any reason for naming it kissing bridge?
Since it was first built, the West Montrose bridge has been labelled as "the kissing bridge," the traditional toll being a kiss.
:):) You never know, You have to pay after you crossed..., I can tell that much, I liked it :):)
this is a tough bridge to photograph, the banks don't have a lot of interesting structures nor foliage. So you have a great capture with a winter sunset. Nicely done Piadera.
Hi Larry, It is difficult as you said. besides there too much overhead wires and other interferes.
Lovely bridge indeed and amazing history too!
Thanks for dropping by.
Wow I didn't know that we had these great bridges still standing in Canada! Great picture and adding this to my fav's!
Cheers from Winnipeg

As they say, this is the oldest one in Ontario,
