Title Lynn Gap overpass
Date October 23, 1939
Description Photograph shows an automobile on the stone overpass at Lynn Gap at mile post 332.6 in section 2L of the Blue Ridge Parkway. Taken by Edward H. Abbuehl on October 23, 1939.
Commentary The photo shows a recently built overpass and exemplifies the want of the designers to make the man-made structure as appealing as possible. This is seen through the use of natural stone used on the side walls to make the overpass look more natural with its surroundings.
