Goose Cove Bridge, circa 1940

Goose Cove, on a frosty day, with the tide coming in under the bridge. Alice Curtis shot this from the Greenbelt side of the cove, where we have hiking trails today.

    When cars went over that wooden bridge we’d hear the rumble on Dennison Street.

  2. Fredrik Bodin says:

    Thanks Chet! I didn’t know the Goose Cove Bridge had a wooden plank surface, like the Annisquam Bridge in the old days. Was it a draw bridge, with larger boats in the cove?

  3. Chet Brigham says:

    Nope, Fred. Just a plank bridge. The original opening, to the south of the present one, reportedly did have a draw.

    Very nice photo -Very cold if walking across it in the winter when the wind was blowing :-)
