Louisville Kentucky

A short sightseeing to Louisville centred around the splendid bridges over the Ohio river and the amazing differences between the day and night-time scenery.



The
Big Four Bridge is an abandoned six-span railroad truss bridge that crosses the Ohio River, connecting Louisville Kentucky and Jeffersonville Indiana. Completed in 1895 and updated in 1929, its largest span
is 547 feet and its total length is 2,525 feet. Its name comes from the defunct Cleveland, Cincinnati, Chicago and
St. Louis Railway, which was nicknamed the "Big Four Railroad"
.

A unique Welcome to Kentucky !



Hopefully also welcoming me was this magnificent statue in a nearby park.
