Ruby Tuesday 2 - Bricks and mortar

At the Maple Street Bridge, crossing the Naugatuck River, Ansonia Connecticut
Ruby Tuesday is back, and we adhere to the simple and basic premise: red, a lot or a little. Today it is a local view down the newly renovated Maple Street bridge in our town of Ansonia. The old factories are not as busy as in decades past. However, the factories were built in an industrial where equal amounts of brick and quality made impressive brick buildings. Though old, they maintain a functional charm and beauty many years later...Sorry about MMTs laptop!

Three different periods and architectures connected by this brisk red color.
It's looking great and cared for.
I have to admit I like the oldest one the best.
They might do well converted into flats too.

As you know there are many old factories in my area. Their brick facades hold so much more character than the metal replacements of this era.
Looks like they did a fine job on the bridge.
