Photographer's Note

The third Alexandra bridge (1962) seen from the second Alexandra bridge (1926). The latter, now abandoned, was built on the site of the first bridge with the same name, built in 1863.
The Fraser Canyon has been an important transport corridor in Western Canada. The construction of the first bridge was prompted by the gold rush upstream in 1850’s, its abandon and destruction by the construction of the railway and a subsequent flood. The increasing importance of the automobile in the 20th century demanded the construction of the second and third bridge. The mighty Fraser carries twice as much water as the Niagara Falls and the previously considered impassable, 38 km long canyon is spectacular. Rafting is supposed to be quite an experience.
A blue sky would have improved the attractively of the picture, but it wasn’t there when I needed it.
