Andy's Angles: Bridge Weekend

Today, an old bridge.

This one takes railroad tracks over the Lackawanna River at Amelia Avenue in Scranton.

I've photographed this one before.  However, I liked the way the sun was hitting it on a recent afternoon.
It was built in 1904.  Theodore Roosevelt was in the White House, and I'm sure this bridge saw a lot of rail traffic.

I'm always amazed at the amount of weight these things can bear, and how they're still in service, more than 100 years after they were constructed.
