Nothing to write home about
An odd postcard, commemorating a bridge tragedy in West Virgina. Sad, yes. Something use on a postcard greeting? I don't know that I would choose this one off the dime store rack.
The back reads: "U.S. History's Worst Hwy. Bridge Disaster SILVER BRIDGE, carrying U.S. #35 Hwy. from POINT PLEASANT, WEST VIRGINA over the Ohio River COLLAPSED 15 Dec 67, killing 46. Railroad bridge in background is still in use."
