Photo of The Month – May 2010
Picture contributor: Roy Lee Harris Collection
For a few months in 1967 there were two bridges over the river. The State constructed a new bridge down river from the old one. Then, when traffic began using the new bridge, the old one was torn down. At that point, 221-A ceased to go through town, another major step in the decline of Cliffside.
We haven’t discovered exactly when the bridge at the right was built, but it was placed down river from the first substantial bridge built in Cliffside, an old iron structure, over which more people walked and rode in buggies than drove those new motorcars.
