Vicki Blackwell of Gig Harbor, Wa, Curator of The Harbor History
Museum; "Thank you for your great donations to our museum's bridge
exhibit & visitor interactive. I also wanted to tell you I went to the Puyallup Fair & saw your terrific bridge model. Congratulations. People standing near me were also impressed. Great website too."
Richard S. Hobbs of Whidbey Island, Wa, published "Catastrophe To
Triumph"; "I so much enjoyed spending some time with you and looking
at the amazing pieces you've gathered. The great thing is you're not
satisfied to just collect, you have a historian/archaeologist/scientist's
mind, the way you know so much about the context of the items. I love the story about your spud wrench."
Stephanie A. Stebich, Director of the Tacoma Art Museum,
"Congratulations on the photo & article in the Tacoma News Tribune. I
enjoy your site & viewing the spectacular bridge photos. The one with the blimp is my favorite. I'm impressed by your work and passion for the
history of the bridges"
Robert Lodge of Wenatchee Wa, contributor to Bridgeabilia, " I am very impressed with your site on the Narrows Bridge-- you obviously have put a lot of serious effort into it. I am especially intrigued by the artifacts."
Tom Gotchy of the Pacific Northwest, photographer & grandson of bridge builder Joe Gotchy, "Your site is wonderful and I believe Grandfather would think the same. I really respect people that are passionate about historical subjects and you are certainly one of those special people. And that's some scale model of the bridge you have there !"
Patrick S. O'Donnell of Pennsylvania, contributer to Photos, "Wow, you
have quite an impressive website here. You may certainly use any of my photos within your website. It is an honor to be part of your project. "

talking about you the other day. Then sort of like magic, there you are.
And... the stuff you post gets more interesting every time I look (or maybe it is that there is just more interesting stuff to look at). The Washington State History Museum ain't got nothing on you !"
