Hi was wondering what year that bridge came down? Where there spaces between the boards one could have seen through to the water?
Sorry, Karen, I do not know. Most of the images displayed here are the result of the kindnesses of strangers who have sent the scans to us so that we can display them. Maybe another reader will know and post the answer. – JMc
From 1951 to 1965 I lived on Carteret Ave., a half-mile from the bridge, which was replaced by the causeway in the mid-late 50s. You could definitely see through between the boards to the bay.
The cloppity, cloppity, cloppity sound (the result of loose/warped/fire damaged boards) was like a distant drum. A few times I was able to look out my bedroom window and see the glow from another nighttime fire on the bridge. They started because people would throw cigarette butts out the window and spilt oil or gas would erupt into flames. It was part of the Seaside adventure.
