Old Harvard Street Bridge Over Rock Creek

Do you know where the Harvard St. Bridge is? I couldn’t place it until I looked it up, and obviously, it’s the bridge at the end of Harvard St. within the National Zoo. Pretty obvious, right? Anyway, here’s a photo of the old bridge in 1909. A modern bridge was completed in 1965, connecting with the Zoo.
