Douglas Street Bridge

File:Ak-Sar-Ben Bridge 1938 LOC 11763u.jpg

After doing some research, RT is pretty certain that his mother traveled over this bridge into Omaha when her mother took her cross-country to Lake Tahoe in 1938. The story is part of A Daughter’s Song and Dance, his mom’s memoir of her childhood years. (RT has been working on Chapter 3, which relates the cross-country trek).

A great photo…   RT
