A view of Carlaw Ave under the CN bridge. We have train tracks above, a wide road for cars and buses below, plus a covered walkway with large arches for people. This cornerstone reads 1931, but interestingly, there is another one on the other side which reads 1930.

Participating in Sunday Bridges

Starting January 4, 2011, a new meme for SIGNS will begin. Read about it at signs, signs, and seek out interesting signage to share with our fellow enthusiasts. (This meme could also fit in well with bridges, windows, skies …)

    Next time, you go to Windsor and take a photo of the Ambassador bridge for me? LOL

  6. Perhaps one side was completed in December, the other in January? 😀

  7. Nice shot. Started in 1930 and completed a year later…?

  8. Another lovely bridge Lesley. Interesting about the different dates on the two parts. Thanks for the link to your new sign meme — I like the idea; I’ve done some sign posts in the past and will try to do more and link them.

  9. Happy Blue Monday! Great images!
