Downtown River Bridges in the News this Week

Vintage postcard featuring 6th Street Bridge in foreground, and 4th and 1st Street bridges in middle. Thanks Netty Carr for loaning me the postcard.

A quick post to alert creek freaks to two historic bridges in the blogosphere this week:

> Yesterday, Blogdowntown highlighted the double-decker 7th Street Viaduct. The post celebrates the 84th anniversary of the bridge opening on September 19th, 1927, and includes interesting facts about who paid for what back then. See also Creek Freak’s earlier journey into the interstices of that great bridge.

> Last Saturday, Youtube user Corvobell posted this video of the set of an upcoming Batman movie – filming under the 6th Street Bridge. Though that 1932 bridge has a long movie pedigree (appearing in Grease, SWAT, and even The Simpsons Movie) it is under threat of demolition if city proposals move forward.
