Title

Bow Bridge, Central Park

Description

Designed by Calvert Vaux and Jacob Wrey Mould, and completed in 1862, this 87-foot span was the second cast-iron bridge constructed in the US. Its likeness to the bow of a violinist or archer gave the structure its name. Stereoview taken probably not long after its construction shows recent tree plantings.
