North 36th Street and Morris Avenue
East St. Louis, Illinois
The Park Bridge Cairn is assembled from an upturned, heavy blue-painted glass vase, an oval platter, an elaborate candlestick holder, a handblown and sandblasted narrow-mouth vase, the green stem of a glass flower, and chemical laboratory glass. This odd collection is balanced on one of several bridges crossing the storm drainage channel that was once the meandering Schoenberger Creek.
This photograph looks east in the very early morning as fog rises from the water flowing in the center of the linear park. A forest of trees separates this area from the railroad tracks to the north. By 7 a.m. the sun had risen above the horizon, piercing through the fog to illuminate the Park Bridge #2.
