Watch the Demolition of Manchester’s Notre Dame Bridge From 1989
This video captures the moment the famous steel arches of the Notre Dame Bridge came down in 1989.
The bridge that hung above the Merrimack river was a staple in Manchester for many years before it's demolition. An easy decision for the city to make as congestion on the roads around it were getting to much to bear.
As you can see in the video, the demolition was well attended. There must have been over a couple hundred people there. Do you remember this day? Were you in attendance?
I've never seen any kind of building/structure demolition, but I would love to. There's something about controlled destruction that just sounds cool.
