Mystery Photo: A bridge to somewhere

  • January 13, 2013
A bridge to somewhere is this week's Mystery Photo.

This is a bridge to somewhere, but where that is we do not know.

Under magnification, we can see that the last line of the weight-limit sign to the right of the bridge reads, “Washington Co. Commissioners,” and the cars in the distance are 1950s vintage. Beyond that, we haven’t a clue where in the county the photo was taken, in what year or for what purpose.

The large barn is similar to several in the county. A clock face appears to be just above the top windows. Just to the right of the man second from the left is a sign reading, “MOTEL.”

If you know the location or date of this picture or can identify any of the road crew, email Park Burroughs, retired executive editor, at, or call and leave him a message along with your telephone number at 724-222-2200, extension 2400.

With help from our readers, we’ll be able to solve this Mystery Photo and publish our findings next Monday.
