New-To-Me: A Database of Historic And Notable Bridges in the US

New-to-me: a database of notable and historic bridges in the United States. (I learned about this site from a marvelous article about a bridge-photographing gentleman named Calvin Sneed. At least I think it’s this site – the URL in the article was wrong so I went looking and found this one.) From the site’s About page: “Railroads have disappeared. Whole towns have vanished or relocated. Buildings have come and gone, or been remodeled beyond recognition. But bridges have remained intact, a silent reminder of our ancestor’s way of life, and a tribute to skillful engineers who had no comprehension of modern school buses or SUVs — and yet were able to build structure capable of standing the test of time.”
