A Few New England Covered Bridges
Dedicated to my brother John
by Jacqueline Lee Dagenais
About the Book
This book includes the three Historic Covered Bridges in Connecticut, along with the oldest covered bridge in Maine, and a few other covered bridges we found in our travels. Photos of all, my comments on how and why these pictures came about and a few Facts about each. This book came about because my brother John who had moved to California from Connecticut over 50 years ago and was unable to view my photos on line. And then the Forestville, Ct postman, Tom, told me about the Comstock Bridge, which I did not know about and that made my book complete. My son-in-law also picked up on my enthusiasm for pictures of covered bridges and he also made a couple of contributions to this book. It has been a fun project in my 82nd year. Enjoy !
