Whittier Bridge photos sought for Bartlett Museum exhibit

AMESBURY — The Bartlett Museum is asking the public for help with a new project as members are working on a living exhibit of the Whittier Bridge/I-95 Improvement Project.

One of the aspects of the exhibit is to chronicle the history of the original Whittier Bridge through photographs and stories from anyone in the Amesbury community who may have worked on the project.

Bartlett Museum members are searching for residents who have photos that he or she would like to share or allow to be copied, and for anyone who worked on the bridge in the 1950s who will be interested in being interviewed for the exhibit.

Contact Bartlett Museum board member Alexander Pooler at alexander.pooler@comcast.net or on his Facebook page.

Located at 270 Main St., the Bartlett Museum is open Memorial Day to Labor Day.
