Note:  Here is a trivia question . . .  "what was the importance of this footbridge to many Hornell High students of the '60s and preceding years". And don't say "to walk across"!

One viewer wrote and said "That bridge was important because back in the good old days, when kids used to actually walk to school, the ones living on the North side of the bridge would have had to walk about three times further to get to the high school (now the middle school).That bridge was much appreciated on bad weather days

Our reply:  Obviously a valid reason but not the one we were looking for. The bridge was heavily used by students coming to school from all directions. Hint: Gym class!

 

Another viewer gave the answer we were looking for (3-23-2005) - When in Junior &  Senior High School during good weather we used to walk to Maple City Park for gym class. That's what we used it for in the late 50's and early 60's.  We also used the old grade school at Maple City Park for wrestling practice.

Our reply:  Obviously an answer from somebody who was there and, like us, wishes he was back!
