Famous Y Bridge from the Air, Zanesville, Ohio

I'll bet making a left turn was a snap

Here’s a postcard that Kay Anthony received in 1947 as part of a swap.  Mildred Wickham of Cumberland, Ohio, wrote the card on July 10, 1947, but didn’t mail it until four days later.  Mildred writes:

“Dear Pal: Thanks for lovely v. card of last mo. It wasn’t stamped at all in P.O. It’s raining this eve. I took ill last eve stomach spell, sore mouth. It’s due to a lack of vitamon (sic) B. Because my system won’t absorb it properly. I take lots of them. Jesus is precious to me & He never fails, Bless His sweet name.”

Postcard friends from long ago

This is a Curteich “C. T. Art Colortone” postcard, number 6B-H224, manufactured in 1946 and distributed by the Black and Grant Company of Zanesville.

    I’ve never been to the USA but if I visit one day Ohio I’d like to see that very interesting Y bridge. Does it still exist?

    Midland, Michigan has a Y pedestrian bridge. It is called the Tridge.

    Marie: They used to build Napoleon cars in my town.

    It’s incredible, a bridge that is divided into two, in 20th century.
    It’s a very fabulous building, I never seen that before.
    Thank you and happy PFF.

  10. Interesting bridge! I didn’t know such a Y-bridge exists. Back here in Asia, we are used to the regular bridge. I can only imagine the traffic here in Phnom Penh if a Y-bridge is built here *lol*

    Have a great weekend!

  11. what a view, indeed! interesting bridge!

    What an amazing bridge! I’ve never seen anything like that before. With the two rivers there, it must save quite a detour if they had only straightforward bridges. Or multiple bridges.
