Bridge With Two Names



You can see a baseball statue at the bottom of the photo and the top of the bridge looks like 2 horses.






I'm back from my weeklong break and hope everyone had a great Christmas.

I was always fascinated with this bridge as a kid and loved the 5 second or less ride through it. It is named the "3rd Street Bridge" because it's on 3rd Street and since they built the AT&T Baseball Park next to it, it was also named the "Lefty O'Doul Bridge".

As this is the last post of the year, I thought a bridge was appropriate for a journey into the new year. Happy 2008 to everyone!

Love the bridge, can't figure it out exactly, but I love it! You're right, it's quite appropriate for going from 2007 to 2008. Thanks.

A bridge from 2007 to 2008, very appropriate indeed. A Happy New Year to you.

Scott, Funny, I was in your neck of the woods last week. I've heard of the Stinking Rose, but never eaten there.

Scott said...

Nice, it's worth a try, great atmosphere and delicious food. (Even if garlic sounds scary to some, it really is good)

AVCR8TEUR said...

Lynette/Neva/Gerald/Roentarre, Thanks for your comments about the bridge. Don't know how this one works either, but bridges in general are just fascinated pieces of architecture.

AVCR8TEUR said...

Scott, so garlic is where the Stinky names comes from. Haha!
