The beginning the demolition of the 14th St. Bridge. I’m going to try to document this event as best I can over the next few months. The next few posts regarding the bridge will focus on the neighborhood ( South Park ) adjacent to the bridge/river. When I was around 4 years old my family lived a stones throw from the river and bridge. Our family doctor’s clinic was located in the heart of South Park so I had continuous ties to the neighborhood for years. The doctor and clinic are long gone. A side story: Our doctor was probably typical for his time, but I remember he always lit up a Camel non-filtered cigarette after he entered the exam room. I remember the clinic having this odd odor of cigarette smoke and alcohol or some cleaning solution. Those were very different times.
