The railway bridge that crosses the Oldman River in Lethbridge, Alberta (where I grew up) is the longest of its type, at 1.6 kilometres from end to end. The Lethbridge Viaduct, commonly known as the High Level Bridge, was constructed between 1907–1909 at a cost of $1,334,525. I have always loved the look of this bridge. Look at it – it is beautiful!
The Canadian Pacific Railway designed this massive steel trestle bridge.. It was there long before I was born, and it will be there for many future generations I’m sure. It is the largest railway structure in Canada. In this big county, that’s saying something.
This is the most memorable landmark of the city and isn’t it sensational? It’s elegant from a distance, and even better up close. I think it is totally awe-inspiring. I took these photos on a city visit a few years ago, but trust me – it still looks the same.
