Longest Covered Bridge in the World


Here's a picture of my mother, Irene, taken around 1940 standing in front of the "Longest Covered Bridge in the World." I love the jagged edges of the photo.


I wonder if this speed limit is still in effect today? This is in response to Mary Tomaselli's post on New Brunswick Covered Bridges for Postcard Friendship Friday!

lovely vintage photo of your mom! $20 must seem a lot during those days!

20 greenbacks does seem like a stiff penalty! Your Mom is lovely! What a sweet smile she has. This is a a shining postcard gem Anita!

Thank you to everyone who commented on my pictures this PF Friday! Marie, you deserve special recognition for hosting such a fun weekly event. I look forward to participating again next Friday.

I've been on covered bridges where they say to not go over 5 km. so I suspect there's still a speed limit or the bridge might even be closed!

I've been gone for a week, and this is a GREAT image to come back to! She doesn't look at all concerned about the traffic!
