Good morning, back to work for those of us who didn’t have a blizzard or flood. I’m combining two photo themes in this posting. “People at Work Monday” and “Monochrome Monday”.  All the photos were taken in New Ipswich, NH.

The bridge in Smithville was repaired in 2010 by replacing the rusted steel pipe with a series of very large cement sections. A large crane did the lifting. It seemed like a good candidate for some selective coloration.

I was pleased to see the inclusion of raised sidewalk which will be included as part of the bridge repair project. I’ve always wanted to view the river without the danger of being run down.The workers poured the cement on September 18, 2015.

Bridge Out
Some real progress has been made on the bridge work here in New Ipswich. Besides all the iron work they have plugged up the old water pipe (left) which used to carry water from Bank Village. Probably a good idea before someone crawled into it.

A serious pile driver. Imagine hearing that all day. I suppose it would shake the china off the shelves in the nearby home.

This shovel is parked right along the edge of a dirt bank, 42 feet above the Souhegan river. Please be careful.

Nice view for these folks. Only consolation is that the banks won’t be eroding for some time.
