Havre de Grace Rail Road Bridge

Taken this morning shortly after sunrise. The fog, the lighting, and water all fused together to allow for some wonderful photography. The current train bridge referred to as the Amtrak Susquehanna River Bridge was built by the Pennsylvania Railroad in 1906. In the distance you can see the remains of the P.W& B Railroad Bridge finished in 1866 after 12 years of construction. In 1910 the P.W & B Railroad bridge was converted into a vehicle bridge and later a top layer was added creating Havre de Grace's formally famous double decker bridge. The double decker was scrapped during War Would Two to aid the war effort.
