Blog Guelph: Covered Bridge Face


DSC_0110.JPG, originally uploaded by edeva_art.

Guelph's Lattice Covered Footbridge was built in June 1992 near the junction of the Speed and Eramosa Rivers by 400 timberframers who were gathered in Guelph from all across North America.

Let me repeat that. Four hundred people came to Guelph to volunteer their time and build us a bridge because it's what they like to do.

Based on an original design from the 1800s, it is one of only two in all of Ontario.

Sue, I really enjoyed this series. I wish I had seen the bridge being constructed. I wonder where I was.

On the other hand, you may be curious about what the City of Guelph looked like last October or maybe Spring.
