By Paul St. Germain

America's oldest seaport, Gloucester, Massachusetts, has sixteen bridges, but only three of them have a significant impact on the history, culture, and social well being of the residents. Their unique function is to provide access off and on the island for thousands of people a day. Three Bridges to Paradise is a history of their reason for being, construction, maintenance, issues, and successes over the years since the Blynman Drawbridge and canal were built in 1643 to the Gloucester Railroad Drawbridge in 1911 and the giant 800-foot steel arch span A. Piatt Andrew Bridge built in 1950 as part of the completion of Route 128. As Gloucester celebrates its quadricentennial in 2023, this book will be part of the 400 years of unique memories that only these three bridges can provide.
