Here are some B&W images your editor took of the old iron Westfield Bridge over the White River in 1976, just before its demolition. In the image above you can get a feel for the tight curve right at the entrance to the bridge. This was a dangerous bridge.
You can see the iron plaque still in place before the fearless foursome (see issue Vol 13 #15) wrestled it down and saved it from destruction.

This is your editor on the bridge. These are my high school days at BRHS and you might be able to make out the ever-so-stylish HP calculator case on my belt. Yes, I wore it all the time, not just during school!
