A bridge between two buildings at the old Southworks foundry in Galt. Originally built in 1847, the buildings underwent several ownerships and several manufacturing changes. Parts of it are now an outlet mall and an antiques mall, but many of the original features still remain within the complex.

  1. I am glad this cute red bridge is preserved well. 🙂
    Great capture.

  2. A great find, I like the design and bright red color. Happy Sunday!

  3. Based on the sloped roof, it looks like it houses a stairwell. I think these are cool no matter how larg or small the building.

  4. I loe these type enclosed footbridges across streets in cities. The ones I have seen are nothing to talk about, but this one is beautiful. Really quaint and full of personality. Great find. genie

  5. «Louis» is always happy to see old buildings like these “recycled” (or “repurposed” as the saying now seems to be…).

    He especially thanks you for this fine contribution to his 100th Sunday Bridge Series post!

  6. What an interesting structure, Lesley. And I like your angle of photography.

  7. PS: Lovely old stonework on these buildings, goog to hear they are being preserved.

  8. Very good photo of this interesting bridge.

    Regards and best wishes

  9. That is fantastic – what a find!
