Main Street Bridge

One of only two bridges constructed during the first decade of the century, the North Main Street bridge was completed in 1910 and designed by Henry G. Parker and Hugo Eckardt. The earliest of the monumental bridges, it replaced an original metal truss bridge that had been deemed an unsightly and unfashionable Victorian-Industrial Age relic by the 1900s. Although bearing the distinction of Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument #901, the bridge has lost much of its detail and ornamentation over the years, like its classical style balustrades and frosted-glass light globe fixtures.
