"Letchworth.jpg" - image/pjpeg, 560x944 (24bit)

Hello, going through a drawer of old photos I found this beauty. Sorry
that the scan is sub-par.
The caption on the back reads "July 4th, feel the mist?" in my dad's
The photo size is 2 3/4 x 4 1/2, date may be early to mid 1940's?

If NS does build a new bridge side by side, I hope the old one remains
as a tourist walk. It would be like the Kinzua one that was dropped by
that tornado a few years ago. And there are similarities in
construction to my untrained eye.
