OK, I am determined to post one that isn't guessed within four posts. If this isn't it, I will quit for awhile and give you all a breather.

Where are we now?

Sacramento, California?

C'mon ... that's just one building. Could be anywhere, really.

None right so far. Hooray, I've finally posted one that wasn't immediately guessed.

You're right, Dan, a little more information would help. Here's another picture with more in it.



BTW, that's not a big white arrow to the right of the bridge, it's a rooftop.

The first photo is Lackawanna Avenue, downtown Scranton, PA looking east toward the intersection of Lackawanna and Moosic Street. Scranton's infamous redlight district.

The second photo is about two miles east near North Main Street, also looking east along Lackawanna (over the Lackawanna River).

Ehh?

Do I vaguely (its been over 15 years) remember that bridge as being the Susquehanna River bridge at Wilkes-Barre?

Wilkes-Barre, PA.

The bridge almost, kind of looks like the Penn street bridge going into Reading...

BUT

I am going to guess Conshohocken.

Rumpy wins! Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Well, we're livin' here in Allentown
And the factories are all closing down
Out in Bethlehem, they're forming lines,
Fillin' out forms, just killin' time
And we're living here in Allentown.

Your prize: a genuine Allentown/Bethlehem steel girder, with a pint o' Guiness for strength!
