The New River Bridge

I took this shot with the self timer on my camera.
It's 876 feet down to the right of my foot.

 Dec 1976



Another self timer shot.  The bridge ended right at the
point you see here.  I took this picture in Sept of  1976



My first jump off the new bridge. was lonely there that day.

Notice the old Wonderhog container which was

the most popular container during this time.

Nov 1981


This is part of a layout that I shot Dec 14, 1976 as a
newspaper photographer for the states largest paper.

The bridge deck was to be installed next.
