(Thumbnail) Collapsed Upper Steel Arch /Honeymoon Bridge 1938 - the last section to sink (image/jpeg)
Title Collapsed Upper Steel Arch /Honeymoon Bridge 1938 - the last section to sink
Creator  Smith, Norman S.
Notes  A massive ice jam in January 1938 brought down the Upper Steel Arch Bridge. Traffic on the bridge was halted at 4 a.m. on January 27 and a death watch began. Here we see the last remaining section of the bridge. Bruce Leslie wrote in the Niagara Falls Review "at 9:30 o'clock the whole ice jam surrounding the rest of the wreckage shifted. Huge channels of water appeared ...At about 3:45 o'clock the final section broke away and floated down river...As it floated down river those watching on the gorge bank had to run to keep up with the speed of the river current moving the massive piece of ice which carried what remained of the bridge. It sank into the water opposite Otter Street on the Canadian side and Elmwood Avenue on the American side ;
Date  April, 1938.
