Rochester Postcard Project Day 11

On that same visit to High Falls I drew this bridge.  Originally built in 1891 for horse and buggy crossing over the gorge the Platt st. Bridge continued till 1977 as a main traffic bridge for the city.  It was closed permanently to traffic at that point since the city decided to convert it to a pedestrian bridge. 

This is the bridge now, after the remodel.  A quite place to walk and sit and read or draw from.  And I have done it from there several times since this piece.  Even on a dark, rainy day it was a beautiful place.  In the distance is the Genesee building that I talked about yesterday.
