A Little More On a Bridge to the Past ~

It's Throw Back Thursday, so we cross a bridge to the past.

Isn't it an interesting thing,

what surprises a quiet Sunday drive may bring? . . .

Traveling along fields and byways,

country roads and Illinois highways . . .

Not so far from here to there,

the bridge D.D. built becomes more clear . . .

Do you recognize this bit of road?

For we near the bridge of which the story is told.
