A setting sun and the Columbia city lights give the Gervais Street Bridge a warm evening glow. The Gervais Street Bridge connects West Columbia and Cayce with downtown Columbia by spanning the Congaree River.
The bridge was completed in 1928 and is Columbia’s oldest bridge crossing the Congaree River. It is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
Photographer Kathryn Harris, who took the image above in 2008, writes, “I saw this bridge on my first visit to Columbia and thought it would be awesome to photograph at sunset. Truly a beautiful site. I will come back in the spring to photograph it again.”
