Peabody Bridge

Some comments the other day were asking about the peabody bridge. I don’t have much info about it, but here’s what I do have.

A postcard view, you can see the bridge to the right of the silos.

1981 – Note the Peabody building is still standing. If you look at the corner of Devonshire and Riverside Dr. you can see the footprint of the flatiron building.

A view from 1913 of the Peabody Building, and the Peabody Bridge.

Obviously the bridge was in place in 1913, and was well built, as it lasted into the 1990’s, only being removed after the rail lines came off the river front.

As much as we’re all fans of the heritage of the city, I doubt you’ll find many tears shed over the loss of the Peabody bottleneck. 😉
