Ices Ferry Bridge

Ices Ferry Bridge

Click for larger image

In 1979 I got a job managing a toy store in Frederick, Maryland and left West Virginia.  My parents built a house in the Cheat Lake area, and whenever I returned to visit them I went across the Ices Ferry Bridge.  I always felt that it had character, certainly more than the replacement that is being built.

This is a pinhole shot of the bridge made on 4×5″ film, printed on Ilford Warm Tone paper.

The demolition of the bridge can be seen at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GGIOcetK6k0 (you can advance the video to the 2:45 mark).
