As you may have heard, last night the main span of the Memorial Bridge (Portsmouth, NH) was floated out – severing the 89 year connection the bridge made between New Hampshire and Maine. As a tribute, I put together the video below. It incorporates a few of our images, but even better than that, I put together a multiple-camera HD time lapse video from the webcam photos of PortsmouthWebcam.com. Being 1,200 or so miles from Portsmouth, it was a real blessing to be able to watch the bridges final hours. Many kudos to the folks that put these webcams together!
The video finishes with vintage footage and a few vintage stills from news reels back in the 1920s that feature the construction and opening day for the bridge. If you would like to read more about this great bridge and see more photos of its inauguration, check out SeacoastNH.com.
