Bideford Bridge once fell down

The west-most arch of Bideford bridge collapsed on 9 January 1968, and here’s a picture I took a few days later.

After a few weeks a temporary footbridge was in place pending repair/replacement of the entire arch.

Both pictures were probably taken on an Ensign Selfix 420 and were home processed at the time. These from scans of recently re-discovered prints.
