 Robbins's unique style of hand-tinting b&w photos, retaining some of their graphic crispness while adding color that is softer and subtler than that of a color photo, serves well for this showcase for 16 types of bridges--from a log over a stream to such varied and complex structures as the Brooklyn Bridge, New Jersey Turnpike, and a vertical lift alternative to a drawbridge. The text suggests the evolving technology, the beauty of the structures, and their place in society. Locations are included. An attractive introduction. (Nonfiction/Picture book. 5-9)
