I came across a really interesting photo for sale on ebay which shows the Carter Bridge being moved into position in 1967.  I'm assuming that this was a reconstruction due to damage done by the Dec. 64 flood.  The photo is dated July 67, two and a half years after the flood.  That's quite a long period of time for that bridge to have been out.  I wonder if there was a temporary bridge during that time.

That is a very neat photo, Doug!  How on earth did you find it?

I thought I had a copy of a photo showing that bridge where it washed out in that flood, but I can't find it now.  From what it looked like to me, the river changed course, cut a new riverbed and washed out the old bridge (the southeast end of it).  I think they filled in that end with rock, etc which is why there is a large empty spot there still.

Wow - shows how good my memory is...  🙂   That was only last year, too!  Well, at least I remembered the important stuff.

Thanks again for posting that photo - it is very cool.  I might have to add those other photos to the historical photos page, too.
