    The bridge I meant is the one by Angel’s. I found out it’s called the Harry Boothman bridge.

    Thanks Gyro. I had *no* idea… logically most Calgarians call it the “Edworthy Bridge”.
    Anyways, here’s a link to a great back story on both this Harry Boothman and the Hextall bridges:

    That’s a good story. If you remember the Hextall bridge being used, you probably remember the old Shouldice house on the hill by the east entrance to Bowmont? That was my uncle’s uncle’s house, but I always get a creepy feeling when I ride by that spot knowing that it served as a crematorium for years……

    The parking lot by that spot will be closed tomorrow for some event, but I can’t find anything on google?
