Well, I guess it's time for some pictures from summer travels. Thanks to Eric Fink's suggestion, I finally made it up to Rockingham County. Here's the Mebane Bridge in Eden, North Carolina -- made famous by Rockingham County v. Luten Bridge Company. The bridge is closed to auto traffic now, though I am reliably informed by locals that it's a great spot for fishing. My informant said it's been closed for more than seven years -- and get this -- that it wouldn't be rebuilt because there wasn't enough traffic! I think that was part of the problem back in the 1920s, too, no?
Anyway, I guess I'm making a habit of taking pictures of cases the Barak Richman writes about. First "Ye Olde Virginnie Inn" from Lucy v. Zehmer in Dinwiddie County, Virginia (Barak's article is here) and now Mebane Bridge (Barak's article is here and a shorter version from Contracts Stories is here).
The trip where I took this netted a bunch of cool photographs, including some more gas stations, a cemetery, and one of the "Eden Drive In." I've been in the hunt for a nice drive in photo or two. Seems like every time I pass a drive in I'm in a hurry and can't stop. But now I have one in my stock. Hope to use it soon.
