My last three blogs have covered High Bridge Kentucky and this one will finish the story on this interesting subject. The first article covered the High Bridge Park and Dance Pavilion while the second and third articles covered the history of the construction and modifications of the railroad High Bridge from the 1850s to today. Now that we know how the railroads crossed the canyon of the Dix River, let's take a look and how the people in their wagons and later automobiles crossed the river at High Bridge. The 1907 postcard below reveals the low tech but effective answer to the personal transportation problem across the river was a simple ferry. This postcard is available in my Kentucky listings along with more than 10,000 thousand additional postcards available on my website at Moody's Postcards.
