    CCC Camp Tripoli in New Hampshire.
    One of the work camps set up to develop the White Mountain National Forest. According to the US Forest Service: "The young men (ages 18 to 25) in the White Mountain camps built roads, hiking and ski trails, picnic shelters, pavilions and campgrounds."
    Several foundations remain today:

    Happened onto this little bridge on a gravel road in Pittsburg County, OK yesterday. The WPA caught my eye as I passed on my way to take a tag photo. They must have built hundreds of these little concrete bridges.

    No bike in the shot because I'm on it. An interesting spot in Garden Valley, ID on the Payette River. I found these "newspapers" (https://dds.crl.edu/crldelivery/13624) from camp archives which were pretty interesting too. IMG_1278.jpeg

    During the Depression, the federal government formed the Civilian Conservation Corps and the Works Projects Administration. They provided employment for those who had lost their jobs.

    That's a cool one. I think I've only seen the large logo once. Around my area, it's the badge.

    I don't recall seeing one like that before. As I was plodding along that gravel road, none too fast on the FJ09, I was pretty much expecting to see that badge on the little bridge because I've seen it so many times on bridges like that all over our part of the country. The big letters were a surprise to me and what sent me back to take a closer look and grab a pic. :thumb

    Probably more than you might want to know here and at the link. WPA and CCC were among the host of projects created by Roosevelt's New Deal to drag this country out of the depression. Most, if not all known by initials, FCC, YCC, WPA, CCC, FSA, etc. Some of the agencies are still around today in one form or another, most were concluded by the time WWII got rolling bringing a big boom to the US economy. WPA probably one of the better-known agencies in that alphabet soup built public works projects all over the US, schools, courthouses, libraries, ball fields, stadiums, bridges, all kinds of infrastructure. Lesser known perhaps are the projects concerning the arts, commissioning all kinds of art projects around the country. As you can tell, as I have rambled on here, the whole thing fascinates me. I've ridden many miles to see this or that WPA project around the state I live in. Not the busiest thread on the board, but one of my favorites. Maybe because I like knowing there are a few other history geek motorcyclists that like this stuff and enjoy seeing the New Deal sites still around today in other parts of the country.

    Different from the one I saw a couple weeks ago. But a grand bridge like that certainly deserves a special marker.
