Beneath the McCullough Bridge -Hwy 101- Looking North (suz)

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Built in 1936, the Conde B. McCullough Memorial Bridge, spanning the north bend of the deep water channel of Coos Bay, in North Bend, Oregon.

I love this beautiful and historic bridge - even and ever more each time I see it. I've recorded a few hundred views already and feel I have only just started.

There are some stunning black and white images in the above link, taken by fine photographers who obviously saw the extraordinary beauty of this structure.

It's a lovely spot to visit, dears Billy and Amelia - this great bridge with a park below it, the lovely stairways and deco detail (see Bridges tag) A mix of architectural styles, if I'm not mistaken. I hope to walk across it in the Spring! Thanks very much :O)

It is a fine bridge, Gine, and we have several other smaller bridges in the area, though not so impressive as this one. Thanks and happy weekend (O:
