Sunday Bridges - Port Hope

Andy | Sunday, October 14, 2012 | Best Blogger Tips

In 1856 the Grand Trunk Railway connected Port Hope to Toronto and the Atlantic seaboard. It's viaduct over the Ganaraska River was the second greatest engineering challenge on the route, exceeded only by bridging the St. Lawrence River at Montreal. This view is looking to east.


Here's another view looking to the west. I'm linking to Sunday Bridges.


  1. Oh wow, that is a very special bridge. I don't think we have them here like that. Have a nice Sunday

  2. How funny that we both posted Port Hope bridges! This one is a favourite of mine.

  3. They built things to last in the 1800s! Beautiful warm stone, I've always loved railroads:)

  4. Oh I know Port Hope. We went that way to Rice lake Cottage maany years ago..

    Do you go around a detour there now or use the same old rustic Bridge?
