About this Item

Very impressive early 20th century album (possibly 1930-31) of over 100 original mounted photographs depicting local bridges in various states of construction. Most of the black-and-white photographs are 3 1/2"x5 1/2". The album, an oblong octavo, is string-tied in its olive-green cloth. Most of the photos appear to focus on Connecticut bridges and the album was probably compiled by H.C. Orr, the Resident Engineer of Cornwall Bridge, CT. (A tipped-in May 1930 letter to him from the Commissioner of the CT Highway Department strongly suggests so). Also includes interesting ephemera discussing some of the most prominent bridge buiders of the day and some of the earliest covered bridges built in CT, such as the Lewis Bridge and the Hart Bridge (now known as the Cornwall and West Cornwall Bridges respectively). Also discusses the much-loved covered bridge in Kent, built in 1858 over the Housatonic River, and covered bridges in Ansonia (also spanning the Housatonic) and Seymour. Bookseller Inventory # 13881
