October 2015 NA RR - Thetford Center Covered Bridge

Beautiful card from Julie!  Thetford Center, Vermont.

Many and varied are the reason advanced for the covering on these old bridges. Although there are innumerable explanations, the most logical is the economic one.  Unprotected wood decays rapidly, and the early settlers found that the live of these riveeri and or crossings was lengthened by putting a covering on and keeping the timber dry.
