Dick Cole’s Drawbridge!

Dick Cole painted this magnificent drawbridge in Wingo out in the baylands in the San Francisco Bay area. It actually raised and lowered railroad tracks ! There was a time when it was used continuously, allowing ships carrying wheat and all sorts of things, to pass along into the ports of San Francisco. As time passed ,the waters have been muddied with silt as a result of the formation of the deltas making it difficult or near impossible to maneuver through. Needless to say ,it stands triumphantly as a work of art in and of it own self. Dick Cole’s flawless depiction of it is a tribute to that which used to be.
