The Chesapeake Bay Bridge 1952

"The Chesapeake Bay Bridge - 1952" by Paul McGehee. A strikingly beautiful view of the Chesapeake Bay's famous bridge as it appeared over a half-century ago. The original span of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge opened in July of 1952 and at the time was the longest continuous over-water steel structure, and the third longest bridge in the world! A second span of the bridge opened in 1973. Today, now named the "William Preston Lane, Jr. Memorial Bridge" (after the Maryland Governor credited with heading up the massive project), the bridge connects Maryland's mainland and the Eastern Shore. The Chesapeake Bay Bridge, at nearly 4 1/2 miles long, is an icon of the Bay. "The Chesapeake Bay Bridge - 1952" is faithfully reproduced from McGehee's original color pencil drawing in a hand-signed limited edition of only 500 prints.
