Albert Memorial Bridge

Albert Memorial Bridge

Here’s a good bridge find by one of our photographers and bloggers from Canada. This one is in Regina in the Province of Saskatchewan. Enjoy the pic and the facts about it. 🙂

This Made Me Smile Today

This bridge, located in the heart of Regina, Saskatchewan, was built in 1930, and is 256 metres long. It was part of a relief program that employed 700 men during the depression. After it’s construction, the bridge was dedicated to Saskatchewan’s WWI fallen soldiers. The flags are changed monthly following the city’s “flag protocol guidelines”. Some months the Regina, Saskatchewan, or Canadian flags are displayed, and other months the Union Jack, or Treaty 4 flags can be seen. Significant events in Canada, Saskatchewan, or Regina might also be commemorated by flying special flags. The bridge was recently restored, and has been given heritage status.
