Discovering John Roebling's Bridge

Apparently it is a big deal to be a Roebling Bridge.  

I had never heard of John A. Roebling until a recent 
stop to take some pictures. 

A woman who lived nearby pointed out 
that the bridge I was photographing was a "Roebling Bridge." 
And sure enough, that's what the plaque says. 

John Roebling immigrated from Prussia to where he settled in Western Pennsylvania. 
He designed and built wire rope suspension bridges. 
His most notable achievement is the Brooklyn Bridge in New York. 


Ya never know what you'll learn from taking pictures. 
I'll have to do it more often. 

More pictures of the bridge and surrounding area are here

I agree photography has taught me more history than school ever did. Love this bridge!
