From the December 1903 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Years ago, work was begun on a bridge which was to connect two sections of one our large cities; slowly the stone arches were formed, and, as it seemed to onlookers, after a long time the structure was completed which, stretching across a deep gully and high above many lines of railroad tracks, to-day forms a safe and pleasant passageway for pedestrians, and direct communication for transportation and traffic across the city. We stand before a fine painting or piece of sculpture and see the embodiment of an ideal; we read a beautiful poem and find thought wrought into expression, or listen to an artistic rendition of some musical work and trace the development of a lofty conception.
