Crossing the Abercrombie River. A beautiful example of 1919 bridge building architecture

Crossing the Abercrombie River. This beautiful bridge was rebuilt in its current form in 1919, using the most modern and cost efficient methods of the day. The original deck was washed away in 1916. The stone foundations and pillars from the original bridge which date back to 1879, were deemed suitable but the deck height was raised to avoid future wash aways. The extensions to the pillars are clearly visible in photos. In May 2013, the bridge underwent a major restoration visible in this quick video. Enjoy. Music Mountain Sounds by Of Monsters and Men
