TIMELINES! bridges past with present

Submitted photo from the TIMELINES! collection

Once again we take keyboard in hand and proceed to compose deathless TIMELINES! prose.

Today’s scene is from an early postcard supplied by Nevada City resident Joanne Woerner. It was printed in Germany and titled “A bird’s eye view of Grass Valley.” The question: “In what direction and on what street are we looking?” No prizes are offered, only the satisfaction that you qualify as a TIMELINES! Post Card Historian Extraordinary!

Now a plethora of readers who viewed and identified the Sept. 27 TIMELINES! shot of the interior of the Bridgeport Covered Bridge include: Jim Dierberger, Bill Tonini, Stuey Weills, Margaret Forbes, Peggy Lassing, Sue Goodenough who calls it, “One of our local treasures,” Dennis Babson, “A landmark for sure,” Jim and Debbie Luckinbill, Ed Martin, “Thanks for your contributions, dude,” Sharol and Jim Partidos, “Xflatlanders living in Nevada City,” Darla Draper, Toni Laub, “Wow, what a photo,” “Love that bridge and its history,” Deborah Wandro.

From our regular TIMELINERS! the RTs Ken, Sis, Brenda, Margaret and Dolly who adds a personal touch: “I learned to swim at the big swimming hole upstream (from the bridge). When we were in high school we almost lived there in summer, great memories, thanks!” You are certainly welcome.

From Reba95945 … who offers “I knew you would be back …” Terry Noziska; “Our local treasure,” Roberta Peters; “(I) recognize its unique construction,” Fred Emmert; Ty, who signs a comcast.net e-dress observes, “It is showing sun through the roof … back in the days (when) it was in disrepair …”
