Thread: Walterdale Bridge

    Hilarious and makes me sad that I missed the chance. (Never thought of doing that - neither as a kid nor as an adult.)

    “Former Journal architecture columnist Trevor Boddy, meanwhile, has written essays and even books on Edmonton’s buildings and infrastructure, and he’s misses bits of the old green Walterdale, even though he now lives in Vancouver. “I grew up with the old steel-deck bridge, and we begged to go across it because it made noise, and we’d imitate it. We buzzed. So that’s something that’s lost.” - source: see below

    Great picture!


    Too bad it is also the nicest view of the plates...

    Yeah, the plates are still unfortunately eye-catching & are getting more visible as dirt/dust collects unevenly between them & the underlying structure.

    Good from afar, but far from good.
    Giving less of a damn than ever… Can't laugh at the ignorant if you ignore them!

    round plates were an obvious upgrade choice

    ...or zinc cladding
