Dale Speirs reports:
On April 22, the City of Calgary had a farewell ceremony for the old Zoo Bridge at 12 Street SE in Inglewood. A new bridge is under construction beside it, and once completed, the old bridge will be removed.
I attended the ceremony and discovered they were giving away a set of three colour postcards, reproducing antique postcards showing the Zoo Bridge in the early part of the 1900s.
The reproduction was excellent. To prevent the postcards from being passed off as originals, the reverse side has the text: "12 Street S.E. Bridge Farewell Celebration - April 22, 2017 - City of Calgary, image provided by Calgary Public Library"
