Throwback Thursday Feb-19-2015

I’m not sure if you’ve seen the crazy shots of Niagara Falls frozen over from this treacherous winter, but they are impressive! (See them here). Back in 1888 and 1902, Manchester had some frozen falls of its own!

The Covered Bridge at Amoskeag Falls was built in 1842 for $12,069. It collapsed to rising water in 1854 and rebuilt. It then stood until 1921, when it again, collapsed.

The frozen falls were located directly under the bridge and are an impressive showing of frigid winters of Manchester’s past! If they could survive brutal winters in 1888 and 1902 we can survive this one! Enjoy the shots below!

Thanks to the Manchester Historic Association for the great pictures!
