Stumbling to find a light switch in the dark

Happy Birthday Brooklyn Bridge

The Bridge a week before its 125th birthdayIt’s the Brooklyn Bridge’s 125th Birthday, do non living things get birthdays? I guess its the 125th anniversary of the day it first opened to the public doesn’t have the same ring.

I found this link to an article from Brooklyn Daily Eagle from the day the bridge opened, it’s pretty sweet

This was the worlds largest bridge at the time it opened connecting the cities of New York and Brooklyn, I can appreciate how the article likened it to having transformed the rainbow, there was a certain sense of awe New Yorker’s of that age had when they saw the bridge… many people probably felt that type of awe as a child at least that was when I can recollect having felt the type of awe

I hope the bridge is still in use in another 125 years or atleast till the last day I can use it
