Construction began on the Victory Bridge in 1919 and it dedicated in ceremonies on July 20, 1922 and was given the name "Victory" for the allied victory in World War I. Soon after completion of the bridge, work began on paving U.S. 90. The bridge remained in operation until the 1960's when a new Victory Bridge was constructed. The pictures seen here are from the western side of the Apalachicola River where only a small remnant of the bridge still survives.
