The Pony Bridge

6 x 12 oil on 3/8" gessoed panel

The Pony Bridge in Oklahoma, also known as The Canadian Bridge, built in 1933, spans the South Canadian River. The bridge used 38 Pony trusses in it's construction and made possible the continued alignment of Route 66. In the filming of "The Grapes of Wrath," the scene of Grandpas death and burial was shot near the west end of the bridge.
