    I thought this bridge was a beauty even before the reproduction lights were added but, my, how the lights add charm!

    • I saw an early-1900s photo of downtown that showed streetlights that looked a lot like these, just on poles. What a sight that would have been, to have this design element perhaps carry all the way downtown!

    Our family drove over this bridge weekly going home to Michigan after we moved away. It didn’t happen often, but I always liked it when dad would take a few extra minutes to actually spend time at the park. From looking at old postcards, they did a nice job with the lights.

    • They did. They are replicas of lights originally on the bridge. I’ve seen photos from downtown from a hundred or so years ago where the streetlights resembled these, too.
