Vintage & Collectible New Orleans Postcards

Huey P. Long Bridge

New Orleans, Louisiana

Undated Linen-era

This is an unused linen-era postcard picturing the Huey P. Long Bridge. It's another Curteich-Chicago  "C. T. Art-Colortone" linen-type postcard. The caption with the picture reads, "The Huey P. Long Bridge Connecting New Orleans with the Great West," and there are numerical notations LA-4, and at the bottom right corner, 6A-H152.

On the reverse, the card notes, "The Huey P. Long Bridge at New Orleans, La., over the Mississippi River. Erected at the coast of $13,000,000. The total length from railroad approach to end is four and one-half miles. The channel span over the navigation channel of the river is 790 feet. The longest free bridge in America and one of to-day's greatest engineering feats. Two auto-roadways one on each side which are 18 feet wide. Time in erecting about 3 years."
