The essence of the High Bridge

June 4th, 2013

Despite the water-carrying impracticality of the up-and-down slopes atop its arches, this painted structure bears more than a passing resemblance to the original appearance of the Roman-inspired, aqueduct-carrying river crossing that gave the neighborhood of Highbridge its name.

    I like this mural. If it’s an aqueduct it could be going downhill from right to left. An illusion caused by perspective make it looks like a section jogs up. The stream adds to the illusion. Or it could be a structure to carry rainwater from either side to the stream. Then again it may simply be a walkway that never carried water.
