...taken on May 5, 2010, I'm finally on to May 6, 2010 in Washington, DC. Hopefully May 6th will last only a fraction of that time. :-)
Shortly before noon we were heading across the Potomac River on a footbridge to Theodore Roosevelt Island when I turned back and noticed the Francis Scott Key Bridge, which connects Virginia with Washington, DC.
The Classical Revival bridge was designed by architect Nathan C. Wyeth and engineer Max C. Tyler. It was built by the United States Army Corps of Engineers between 1917 and 1923, and was named after Francis Scott Key, author of The Star Spangled Banner. The northern terminus of the bridge is just east of the site of Key's Georgetown home, which was dismantled in the late 1940s; near that site, there is now a community park honoring Key.
