I just entered the Bridges of Portland Now challenge. So glad the deadline was extended to make it possible.
This is what I wrote about the Steel Bridge:
The Steel Bridge was the first bridge in Portland, but it was rebuilt so it isn’t the oldest. It supports all traffic, trains, cars, pedestrians, bicycles etc but makes no fuss, asks no glory. Among sweeping art nouveau beauties it is a cheerful old Victorian dam wearing black for someone she remembers fondly. It’s my favorite bridge.
