Strawberry Mansion Bridge

Click to enlarge

Here we are, another bridge along the Schuylkill River. The Schuylkill River is often used for rowing regattas (regattae?). You can see the lane numbers just above the near arch on the bridge. Unfortunately, this year, due to budget cuts, one of the river's premier events, the Dad Vail Regatta, was moved to New Jersey.

More Schuylkill Bridges

So for those of you outside of the Philadelphia area, the Schuylkill River, which runs through the middle of the city, is pronounced "SKOO-kull". This picture is taken from the East Falls neighborhood of Philadelphia.

Schuylkill River

I wasn't thrilled with the colors in this picture. It was a November midmorning, and there was a haze, which made all the colors very bland. See for yourself below. Not visible in this picture is an additional mode of transportation-- on the bridge to the left, there are functioning trolley tracks.
