Richardson-Graham Bridge, Northeast Kansas City



Richardson-Graham Memorial Bridge  ( also still called Anderson Bridge ). Built in 1897 it never had a formal name.  Five years ago the Park Board voted to name it for Dr. Katherine Berry Richardson, a surgeon, and Dr. Alice Berry Graham, a dentist.  The same year the bridge was built the Doctors founded Children's Mercy Hospital; their first beds were on the third floor of their home on North Clinton Place at Windsor.   The home still stands and is in fine shape.

Stationed myself on the west side of the Kansas City Museum Sunday afternoon and set the camera to do interval shooting.  One shot every 15 seconds.  Ended up with 697 shots which I merged into one video in Final Cut Pro X.  A little over two hours are covered.  I stopped when the rain started :)   The Kansas City downtown skyline is visible in the distance.
