Due to a sick hairdresser, I couldn't get a haircut today so I took the time instead to drive back downtown and go over the Boulder Ave. Bridge (see yesterday's post) myself for the first time. Yesterday, we left before it was "officially" open to the public.
Today, mine was the only car on it! I drove over it twice, once in each direction, and the only vehicles I saw on it were trucks of workers who are attaching more decorative metal cutouts to the east side railing. I stopped to take this photo of the Route 66 shield and vintage car cutout. On the right is a cutout of the Blue Dome, also on Route 66.
Another fact about the Brady Theater, and not one of which Tulsa is particularly proud, is that the building was used temporarily to detain black men rounded up by the National Guard during the 1921 Race Riot.
