“Crossing the American River 1912”
Artist: James Geddes


A buggy crossing Lyon’s Bridge with the Quarry
Bridge in the distance. The buildings that housed
the workers who built the Quarry Bridge are still
present at the foot of the bridge. It was an all
day trip from Georgetown, maybe longer in a buggy.

The Quarry Bridge is frequently referred to these
days as “No Hands” Bridge. In 1963 it was
reopened when the Hell Hole Dam, on the
Middle Fork of the American River, broke and
sent a wall of water down stream. This completely
destroyed the bridge going to the Georgetown
Divide and Cool. One lane traffic was routed
across “No Hands” Bridge although slow,
the alternative was much longer.
