    On my way out to Kirkland, Ohio, to find the old Esso Station, I passed a bridge off Euclid-Chardon Road. I thought it looked kind of interesting, but too new to be worth stopping for. I drove on the Esso Station. Once I got to my destination, I was disappointed.

    The gas station was back off the road on private property and there were warning signs to let you know, so I couldn’t get the shots I really wanted (close-ups). I took a few where I could and got back in my car.

    On the way back, I remembered the “new” bridge, and decided I’d stop when I got to it. The bridge is actually on a turn-off named Pleasant Valley. When I got to the bridge I was quite surprised. It wasn’t “new” at all. The bridge was built in 1881 and it is probably one of the few iron bridges remaining from the 19th century. Appropriately, it is named the Pleasant Valley Bridge (you can Google it).

    So, it just goes to show that even a blind squirrel (of photographer) finds an occasional acorn.
