Crossing the Bridge

I Spy Update: July 2009

Elaine Kuperman identifies July's feature as "my favorite place--Gallup Park." Specifically, "the bridge spanning the Huron River at the east end of Gallup Pond," adds Phyllis Valentine. "We've had many picnics in that area, along with most of Ann Arbor."

"This is where I was married," shares Paul Horvath. "The complete bridal party walked the bridge en route to the ceremony."

"I just walked that bridge..." writes Linda McCallum. "I was enjoying the view and...saw swans with their young--very nice."

Twenty-one people correctly identified the bridge with Asian stylistic influences, which was dedicated in 1994 on the twenty-fifth anniversary of the start of the sister-city relationship between Ann Arbor and Hikone, Japan. Our random drawing winner is M. Phyllis Hill, who will receive a copy of A History of Ann Arbor by Jonathan Marwil.

To enter this month's contest, identify the photo at the top of p. 67 of the August Ann Arbor Observer no later than Monday, August 10. The clue is:

"Ann Arbor's newest stage."    (end of article)
