Bridge myths debunked at Café Galt

E-mail Print

If the In the Shadow Under the Bridge festival, Sept. 5 piques your curiosity for more Bridge trivia, then check out the third Cafe Galt presentation, Sept. 8.the bridge
Belinda Crowson will debunk some of the myths surrounding Lethbridge’s steel runged railroad icon during the last Café Gault presentation about the bridge at the Gault Museum.
 The presentation will  help draw the museum’s latest display focusing on the Bridge’s 100th birthday to a close.
“One thing we get asked a lot is if we’re called Lethbridge because we’re located left of the bridge,” Crowson chuckled.
“A lot of stupid and illegal things and highly dangerous things are said to have occurred around the bridge. Did people fly planes through it? Of course  the older planes had shorter wingspans. Did people cycle across it? Does the ghost of the man who designed the bridge still haunt it?” she pondered, suggesting some of the strange stories she will tell about the bridge.
