I just wrote a blog post for Nelson Kootenay Lake Tourism about Nelson’s Big Orange Bridge, which was originally silver, as seen in the postcard below. You can read it here.
The same page has lots of interesting information about local attractions, historical and otherwise, including Streetcar 23, the Lardeau Valley Historical Centre, and Nelson Fire and Rescue Museum under the Arts, Culture, and Heritage tab.
Here’s the front cover of the program from the bridge’s opening. That’s Premier W.A.C. Bennett in the inset photo — he cut the ribbon.
