Vintage Los Gatos Postcard: Main Street Bridge 1906

New Concrete Main Street Bridge over Los Gatos Creek 1906
This Main Street bridge was built in 1906 to replace the old trestle bridge. It was dedicated on May 1, 1906, in a quiet ceremony. A bigger event was cancelled after the April 18, 1906, earthquake damaged significant parts of Los Gatos. The temblor did not damage the "new bridge." This bridge was demolished and replaced by the current bridge in 1954 to make way for Highway 17.
