Here's an interesting locale. Check out the White Bridge at Garards Fort somewhere in Southwestern Pennsylvania. Covered bridges are in a league of their own. Let's see, bridges with "covers", what a concept! The two "models" in the photo are the photographer and sidekick "Harpo."

The Tunkhannock Viaduct of Pennsylvania is also known as the Nicholson Viaduct.

The Viaduct was built by the Delaware, Lackawanna & Western Railroad in 1915 and currently serves the Canadian Pacific Railway.

 

This bridge took over 3 years to build and is the biggest and most impressive concrete bridge in America. The bridge has to literally be seen to be believed. 02-07

The Bush Tower building was built between 1916 to 1918 and its site is only 15m wide and 27.5m deep. The building was regarded as such for the next decade of feverish urban construction. The style of the building follows the "traditional" early skyscraper style with its Gothic appearance. The windows are concentrated to the north and south facades, as well as to a recessed mid-facade light-well on the east facade. 07-07
