Here's something you don't see every day. 

The original bridge at this point was built in  1898.

Fine photo of this classic bridge. Wouldn't mind riding my bike across it, but I'd think twice about driving my car across.

Wow, that is one ling impressive abd heartwarming history of the bridge.First thing I thought when I saw the picture was safety, I'm quite afraid of bridges especially old wooden ones.

Wooden suspension bridges I know in my country is for pedestrians and bikers only. This looks unique.

Lovely bridge, tho it doesn't seem safe for cars. But it must be.
